It is now official or almost, Dimitri Payet has become a super-substitute on the side of Olympique de Marseille. Against Lens, the metronome from Reunion was unable to change things, and it’s starting to make people cringe.
Olympique de Marseille probably did not deserve to lose against RC Lens, but the record is there, the Marseille club has just lost three games in a row, going from runner-up to PSG to a possible sixth place in the Ligue 1 standings if Rennes (in Angers) and Monaco (in Lille) won this Sunday. Of course, there is no need to panic for OM, who will already have to focus on their match against Frankfurt in the Champions League on Wednesday in Germany. But all the same, neutral observers are beginning to ask questions about the management of its workforce by Igor Tudor. At the heart of the debates, the role of Dimitri Payet, pushed on the sidelines by the successor of Jorge Sampaoli, and who is no longer at all a potential holder for the Croatian coach of Marseille. Entering in the 76th minute of the match against Lens in place of Mattéo Guendouzi, OM number 10 gritted his teeth, but it became problematic.
Payet victim of Tudor’s choice at OM

Via Twitter, Ludovic Duchesne clearly questions the management of the Marseille workforce by Igor Tudor, highlighting the case of Dimitri Payet. “ Much success for the RCLens. OM deserved better. A glaring lack of realism and I repeat myself, Igor Tudor’s coaching is… catastrophic!! By dint of neglecting them Tudor loses these substitutes, Dimitri Payet the 1st. It’s getting expensive “, remarked the journalist, obviously not at all a follower of the choices of the technician of Olympique de Marseille. For the moment, the results pleaded clearly in favor of Igor Tudor, but permanently deprived of a player such as Dimitri Payet if things got worse in Ligue 1 could come back like a boomerang.
