Olympique de Marseille coach Jorge Sampaoli spoke on Friday about Dimitri Payet. The Argentine coach did not hesitate to put a little pressure on the Reunionese before the reception of Dijon this Sunday as part of the 31st day of Ligue 1.
The Argentinian technician is not really the four-way street when it comes to conveying messages. Despite his executive status, Dimitri Payet learned it the hard way this Friday. If he recognizes his undeniable talent, Sampaoli is convinced that his playmaker must now take much more care of him physically.
I knew his talent. I spoke to him, he knows he is far from what is expected of him, he has to find a form and a physique to be again this decisive player, who has made so many differences in the past. As a coach, my job is to get the best out of each player. If we can exploit Dim’s full potential, it is obvious that the team will play better on offense. Because he has an enormous talent, and a beautiful vision of the game. His current irregularity means that we do not see the best Payet on the field, but he will try to return to his best level, and to be decisive, confided the OM coach.
