Payet « ready » to play in Nantes, according to Sampaoli


During his last away match, Dimitri Payet received a bottle in the head on the lawn of Groupama Stadium in Lyon.

Shocked, upset by the events of this sad OL-OM on November 21, Dimitri Payet seems to have turned the page. « I think so, I think he’s ready. He has a lot of personality», Replied Sampaoli to a question about the presence of his playmaker on the lawn of Nantes, his first professional club.

« I hope nothing will happen. We’re a little tired that every time we play outside this kind of thing happens« , he added. « After Lyon, we didn’t see it too much at first. Then we went to Turkey (Payet was suspended against Galatasaray, Editor’s note). I didn’t see him until Friday. It is difficult for any player. But Dimitri has a great strength of character and experience. I hope all is well with him“, For his part declared Boubacar Kamara.

Payet had already been hit, on the back, by a full bottle during OM’s trip to Nice in August. He was preparing as in Lyon to take a corner. The previous day, in Montpellier, it was Valentin Rongier who had been cut on the lip after being thrown from a bottle.
