West Ham have had an absolutely miserable start to the season, so much so that fans are already discussing the departure of and recent links to re-sign Dimitri Payet.
West Ham fans were stunned when reports this summer claimed they could bring Payet back to the London Stadium, and a section of fans are now regretting missing out.
A report in The Guardian claimed the Frenchman’s representatives had reached out to the Hammers regarding a return to East London, but he did not become one of the Pellegrini’s huge influx of signings.
The Chilean manager’s free-flowing football hasn’t produced anywhere near the goals or results that fans had hoped, and it’s fair to say they are missing a bit of star quality.
Last weekend’s defeat to Wolves was a sloppy affair, but a moment of brilliance from a character like Payet could have turned the game in an instant.
The 31 year-old, who scored 11 Premier League goals for the Hammers, has got off to a good start with Marseille this season, bagging two goals in their season opener before grabbing an assist in their comeback win against Monaco last weekend.
