Dimitri Payet or Paolo Di Canio? That question was the subject of discussion by the West Ham United fans on social media on Tuesday night.

Some placed Payet above Di Canio, but others were outraged at the very suggestion.

Payet only played 60 times for West Ham, scoring 15 times before returning to Marseille in January 2017.

The Frenchman was outstanding during his time at the London Stadium, but he lost a lot of respect with the manner of his exit.

Di Canio, on the other hand, scored 52 times in 141 appearances for the Hammers between 1999 and 2003.

The 50-year-old will always be regarded as a legend by the West Ham fans, and he was certainly one of the most talented footballers to play in the Premier League.

The Payet versus Di Canio discussion brought some very interesting responses, and it would be fair to say that there were a lot of differing opinions.
