Dimirti Payet, remember that name?

Sure you do, the man who left West Ham on some seriously bad terms after declaring that he simply had to return to the one team he truly loved; Marseille.

Back in Ligue 1, Payet hasn't exactly set the world alight, with the 30-year-old only scoring three times and assisting three more in 15 league appearances this season.

He's been in and out of the team as well, with Florian Thauvin and Lucas Ocampos getting a lot of game time.

Against Strasbourg, Payet was again condemned to the bench, however, he did have a decisive impact when he was brought on in what was quite a dull affair.

Former Tottenham man Clinton N'Jie had given Marseille the lead in the Velodrome and then, Payet put the gloss on the victory with a brilliant second.

But, the big talking point from the goal is the fact that he actually managed to injure the keeper in the process.

How did he do so? By sending him for a hot dog with a perfectly executed dummy. You can watch the goal below.


The keeper Alexandre Oukidja had to be stretchered off with what looked a nasty knee injury. We all hope he makes a quick recovery.

Payet's moment of brilliance certainly sparked a lot of reaction on Twitter. Here are a selection of the best tweets for you.


Payet will be hoping the goal can get him on a decent run of form ahead of the summer World Cup.

The attacking midfielder - who starred for Les Bleus at Euro 2016 - has fallen down the pecking order due to the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Anthony Martial.

It certainly won't be easy, but not impossible for a player of his obvious talent.
