Dimitri Payet’s huge appeal to the French team


By: Manu Tournoux

Dimitri Payet loves his new life in Brazil. Arriving this summer in the Brazilian championship, the Frenchman is having a blast at Vasco da Gama where he has won over his own supporters.

The former midfielder and captain of Olympique de Marseille continues his good performances within the Brazilian squad where he brings his total to 2 goals and 4 assists in 8 matches.

During an interview given to the newspaperTeamthe former Olympian number 10 returned to his new adventure in the country of football and did not fail to send a message to the French team for the 2024 Olympics this summer in Paris.

“There are only three places. I am at the disposal of France. I know what it’s like to play a Euro in my country and it was extraordinary. On the other hand, I don’t know what it’s like to compete in the Olympics. As a Frenchman, I would love to have such an experience. I would like that, yes. I am at the disposal of the French team, whatever it may be. We’ll see. There is a coach (Thierry Henry) who will make his choices, I am calm with that,” he said.

Antoine Griezmann rather than Dimitri Payet at the Olympics?

This summer France will host the Olympic Games. The whole world will have their eyes fixed on Paris and the country. All players dream of participating in this event. This is the case of Dimitri Payet but also of Antoine Griezmann. The number 7 of the Blues declared several weeks ago his desire to appear in Thierry Henry’s group for the competition. However, places will be very expensive to participate. Only 3 players over the age of 23 are authorized to be in the squad.

“It’s something exceptional” to have the Games in Paris. I will have a discussion with the management, in due course, to find out if they will let me go. I know my body, we have very high level physiotherapists, so there is no problem,” he declared during an interview with World. To be continued…
