Victim of a bottle thrown from an OL supporter last Sunday at the Olympico, Dimitri Payet seems to have been traumatized by this new episode. Enough to encourage him to review his plans for the end of his career?
Asked at a press conference last week before the clash between OL and OM , Dimitri Payet had clearly shown his desire to continue his career for a few more years at the height of his 34 years: “As long as I can give, that I can evolve at a certain level, I do not want to stop. I'm 34 years old, but I feel far from the end of my career, ”said the number 10 of the OM . However, after only two minutes of play in this Olympico, Payet was the victim of a bottle thrown to the head as he was about to take a corner kick, and this episode seems to have taken a fairly serious psychological impact.
“I am now afraid …”
Indeed, L'Equipe obtained the complaint report from Dimitri Payet to the police following this attack, and the testimony of the OM player is striking: “When I returned to the locker room, I realized what had happened to me. I was shocked alone on the treatment table. I was completely unable to resume the meeting. I am still, even today, in shock. I am now afraid of taking corners on the outside ”. Enough to encourage Payet to review his position for his future and the end of his career, while his contract with OM runs until June 2024?
