West Ham fans react on Twitter as Payet scores stunner for Marseille

By Matt Farr

Dimitri Payet was back in the goals with a stunning free-kick for Marseille against Dijon on Saturday – and West Ham fans on Twitter have said it’s time to move on.

A video replay of the 30-year-old’s effort was shared on Twitter by BT Sport on their official Twitter account on Saturday night.

The Frenchman has had mixed results since sealing his return to his former club from West Ham in January, contributing four goals and two assists from his 11 appearances for the club.

But the east London club have certainly felt the absence of his creativity in the final third, having won just one of their eight Premier League games since his departure.

Payet has established a trademark as a free-kick specialist for club and country throughout his career, but his latest effort for Marseille was far from a pleasant trip down memory lane for West Ham fans.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The majority of West Ham fans are still feeling bitter at the manner of Payet’s departure from the club, having refused to play for the club again.

Coupled with poor performances from the club’s senior stars, as well as the increasing pressure on manager Slaven Bilic, West Ham have endured a disappointing Premier League campaign that has left them flirting with relegation.

The move to the London Stadium at the start of the season was supposed to be the start of a new era for the club, but it is evident that they will need time to set their plan in motion.

A 2-1 defeat to Hull on Saturday left West Ham just six points clear of the relegation zone with eight Premier League games remaining.

In other West Ham news, the Hammers are set to do battle with Everton for the signature of this ostracised Premier League 28-year-old.
