On the sidelines of the resumption of the championship, Dimitri Payet is, in an interview given to Provence, returned to the first part of the season during which he saw his status be widely questioned. Asked about his relationship with his president, the 35-year-old attacking midfielder did not hesitate to praise him.
“We have a very good relationship, frank and based on trust. We immediately had this feeling. He is someone who knows football, we can talk about anything with him. He is straight. So far he has said things and he has done them. It is the most important. Today, his popularity rating is based on his knowledge of football and his understanding of the club. He was already there before becoming president, he was able to observe the fervor and the expectation that surrounds this club. Above all, he was transparent with us and with the supporters. This is what makes it popular. We talked about it with Pablo and the shareholder. We said to ourselves that we had to stop telling people what they want to hear. You have to tell them the truth. If the club has difficulty recruiting, it must be said. It’s not worth giving false hope. This transparency has brought serenity to the club.”he explained.
