In an interview with France Football, Dimitri Payet made very strong comments about his status at Olympique de Marseille.
If Dimitri Payet is part of the furniture in Marseille, the playmaker has certainly experienced his most delicate season since his arrival on the Canebière. Confined to a role of luxury joker, Payet remained exemplary, despite the frustration. And the course of this season does not encourage him to look elsewhere. On the contrary, the former French international says he is determined to stay at OM.

Staying in a club you love, we respected that a few years ago. And that’s what we don’t want today? Is that what I’m being blamed for? I can’t conceive it. Someone who says to you: ‘I want to stay here, go nowhere else, not for the money or for another project, my family is fine, this is my club, this is my city’. And you, you answer him that it’s a cannonball? Otherwise, you would have told me that I am only a mercenary who thinks only of money. And requests, I still have some“.
“Even at 36, I still have goals that keep me awake”
Payet recalled his primary ambition: to lift a trophy with Olympique de Marseille. “I was not promised anything in a club where I have always fought to have playing time. This year has been complicated, of course. But, at my age, I still learned. I will not miss my outing. This year has been exceptional emotionally with the supporters and yet it is the season where I have played the least. I want to leave through the front door, and even at 36, I still have goals that keep me awake. I tell myself that I can’t stop until I win something with this club. »
