West Ham Fans Turn on Dimitri Payet after Slaven Bilic Confirms He Wants Out

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has confirmed that French midfielder Dimitri Payet no longer wants to play for the club.

The former Marseille star had an outstanding season for the Hammers last term and played a key role as they finished in 7th place in the Premier League.

However, West Ham have struggled to replicate the form of last term and are currently in the bottom half of the table after 20 games.

And the club’s change in fortunes is clearly affecting their players, with Payet now keen to leave the capital, according to his manager.

“We have said we don’t want to sell our best players but Payet does not want to play for us. He wants to leave,” Bilic said.

“We are not going to sell him. This team, the staff, we gave him everything, we were always there for him. I feel let down. I feel angry.”

Understandably, the club’s fans are equally heartbroken, with the majority taking to social media to criticise the player:

 

With West Ham set to host Crystal Palace this weekend in the Premier League, it will be very interesting to see what kind of reception the 29-year-old receives from the supporters.
