West Ham fans are cursing their owners yet again, as they revel in yet another marvellous Europa League performance from Dimitri Payet.
Rival fans may not want to believe it, but based on raw ability alone Dimitri Payet is one of the most talented footballers on the planet.
The French free-kick maestro was incredible for the Hammers, and fans are missing him even more after his incredible Europa League semi-final performance on Thursday.
The 31 year-old dazzled in Marseille’s first leg win over Red Bull Salzburg, assisting both goals in the 2-0 win.
Of course, the last time Payet played in the Europa League with West Ham they were sent home by Astra Giurgiu in the play-off round, so fans may be able to forgive him for forcing his move away from London.
Payet has been lighting it up for Marseille since the move, and his two assists on Thursday takes his tally to 18 for the season, including six in Europe. He has also added nine goals in all competitions.
The playmaker has been at his absolute best recently, with one goal and six assists in his last four matches, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…

I can’t even be mad with Payet anymore I jumped off that train a long time ago. Him leaving was the right decision

the board are WAY out of their depth. You can't blame him for wanting to play for a club that matches his ambitions.

Confused?? No not at all, I’d want to leave West Ham if I played for them

Well they convinced him to stay but how ? Did they promise top class players coming in, because as soon as he see what came in he wanted out and can’t blame him either
