Dimitri Payet: I left West Ham to save my place in the French national team

Speaking in an interview with Canal Football Club last night, Marseille’s attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet discussed his decision to leave West Ham in the most recent transfer window.

“No, not at all. I have come back to Marseille, it is an area that I know well. There is a new manager, the new project. At West Ham, it was more difficult for me… I was scared of losing my place in the French national team… I always had it in a corner of my head that I would come back one day.”
