Dimitri Payet Is Flawed And Will Never Fulfil His Potential, Says West Ham’s David Sullivan

share on:

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan says Dimitri Payet is “a flawed individual” who will never fulfil his potential.

Payet left the Hammers under a cloud in January after refusing to play, and Sullivan told talkSPORT: “We knew Dimitri was flawed, and that’s why we got him for £10.5million.

“It was a fantastic buy, but we knew we bought a flawed individual and someone who could well go on strike – he had done it all before.

“That’s why he never reached his full potential as a player and why big clubs have steered clear of him.

“We wouldn’t have sold him unless we had to. We had meeting after meeting with him – he wanted out and the manager wanted him out. He didn’t want to have an unhappy camp. Personally, I would have made him stick it out for six months and given him a hard time, but if the manger says he’s unsettling the whole camp, you’ve got to support the manager.”
