The verdict fell last night. Guilty of having slapped Yannick Cahuzac, Franck Haise’s assistant, during the clash between Lens and OM, the Reunionese was caught by the patrol after the images of this scene were broadcast on Prime Video. The Frenchman, who did not appear before the disciplinary committee to explain his action and defend himself, was represented by a lawyer from the Olympian club. Which certainly did not plead in his favor. Thus, he received a heavy penalty.

His last match with OM?

“34th day of Ligue 1 Uber Eats: RC Lens – Olympique de Marseille of May 6, 2023. Behavior of Dimitri PAYET (Olympique de Marseille). Three suspended games and two suspended games. The sanction takes effect from Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at 00:00 a.m., could we read on the press release. Dimitri Payet, who did not receive a red card during the match, will be present during the match against Lille this weekend. Then he will serve his suspension matches.

Then, it will be time to sit around a table and settle the question surrounding his personal future. At the end of the contract in June 2024, the footballer born in 87 is a substitute in the spirit of Igor Tudor this season (27 appearances including 11 as a starter this season, 4 goals and 3 assists, editor’s note). And the Croatian like the residents of the Orange Vélodrome are not counting on him next year. This is what announces Provence this Thursday.

Leaders facing the Payet puzzle

The local media explains that the Payet case poses a problem for Marseille leaders, who do not necessarily appreciate the subject elsewhere. Pablo Longoria and his teams do not understand why the former management led by Jacques-Henry Eyraud made him sign a long-term contract as well as the fact that he is described as “Marseillais for life”. We can confirm that the current management has certain misunderstandings concerning the contracts signed by the ex-leaders. This was particularly the case last year for that of Steve Mandanda. Same thing for Payet.

JHE had also included the possibility for the 36-year-old player to carry out his retraining within the Marseille team. On this specific point, we do not know the position of the main interested party and the club. On the other hand, OM do not see themselves continuing with him next year, although his salary is no longer a problem. Regarding Dimitri Payet, La Provence explains that he enjoys life in Marseille where he intends to stay. As for its future, all options are possible. It will certainly depend on him. Which will not help Olympique de Marseille, which sees itself advancing without him.
