An immeasurable pain. On July 21, pushed towards the exit by management, Dimitri Payet tearfully announced his departure from OM. I think that when a soccer management team tells you that you’re not going to be counted on, you have to be intelligent and know how to turn the page. Of course, that wasn’t my wish.
