This week, West Ham United fans reacted to a photo of Dimitri Payet that was posted online. The post was shared by a Chelsea fan on Twitter who claimed that Payet was underrated during his time in the Premier League. He suggests that, had the Frenchman stayed, he could have been so much more.

This caused many West Ham fans to applaud the player, claiming that he was one of the best they have ever seen to pull on a Hammers jersey. Some admit that, when he was in the mood, Payet was like a cheat code. However, others aren’t willing to forget how he left the club. Payet has admitted in the past that he doesn’t blame the fans for hating him after he forced an exit from the side.

Here are a few examples of how West Ham United fans reacted to the post.

To kick off this quiz on the goings-on at the London Stadium last week, according to Claret and Hugh, what is the supposed 'age ceiling' that David Moyes has set for signings?

Would you take Payet back at West Ham?

Yes - he is brilliant

Yes - he is brilliant

No - he's a traitor

What do we think?

In 60 appearances for the Hammers, Payet managed to score 15 goals and assist 23 of his teammates. West Ham managed to receive £26.37 million for the player when he forced the move back in January 2017, just short of his £27 million market value at the time.
