Hmmmm. One wonders who exactly Dimitri Payet's advisers think they are fooling with his latest half baked excuse for wanting to leave West Ham. Last weekend he tried the old 'I'm injured' trick but nobody wanted to listen after he made a pretty clear statement of not playing for West Ham again.
Today it's moved to the 'wife's not happy' AKA 'I can't come out 'cos the wife's in a strop' excuse frequently used by men who don't fancy meeting up with their mates for Tuesday night darts etc.
At this rate the old gem of 'the dog ate my homework.....(sorry) contract' should be wheeled out by tomorrow.
Hammers fans deserve more than these feeble excuses which are a lame attempt at damage limitation. What's the bets that Payet will yet be courted by Arsenal / Chelsea / PSG? One suspects he won't be injured or homesick for Marseille by then.
