Dimitri Payet Is The Ultimate 'Streets Will Never Forget' Player, His Career Highlights Are Insane
| Last updated
if you're discussing players who "the streets will never forget" then Dimitri Payet would appear to be the absolute epitome.
The French playmaker likely hasn't quite reached the world-class category in his career but is undoubtedly an absolute baller who has produced several jaw-dropping moments in his career.
His latest came on Thursday night in the Europa Conference League when he produced one of the goals of the season - an outrageous half volley into the top bins from a corner against PAOK.
The technique was absolutely incredible but it was the sort of skill we've come to expect from the Marseille skipper.
And in the short spell he had in the Premier League, Payet was unplayable.
Signed from Marseille for £10.7 million in the summer of 2015, Payet was brought back the level of X-Factor and entertainment that the Hammers had been crying out ever since Paolo di Canio left.
Payet was wondrous to watch and played with a real swagger that got West Ham fans up and out of their seats.
Not only that but his stats were also extremely impressive, with the Frenchman scoring nine goals and registering 12 assists in the league for Slaven Bilic's side in his debut campaign.
THAT rabona assist for Michail Antonio against Watford is one of the best of all time and the inexplicably sublime free-kick against Wayne Hennessey and Crystal Palace are just two of his incredible moments in the season.
Payet was deservedly named in the PFA Team of the Year for his contributions and his highlights from the term are still a joy to behold.
Further magic came in his second season, including a stellar solo goal where he sat down the whole Middlesbrough backline.
After refusing to play, Payet would eventually get his wish in the January window, heading back to Les Olympiens in a £25 million move.
In his second spell, Payet's played 206 times and scored 56 - including 13 this season for Jorge Sampaoli's side.
