Having once been the team’s talisman, former West Ham player Dimitri Payet left West Ham United for Marseille in rather acrimonious terms. The manner of his departure left a rather bad taste on the West Ham fans who have since viewed Payet as public enemy number 1.
The fans’ aversion for Payet once more came to the fore in the most unexpected of events when West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell was selected in the England squad for the upcoming friendlies against Scotland and France.
With the prospect of Cresswell lining up against Payet in the England vs France tie, West Ham fans were expectedly eager to see Payet receive it from Cresswell.
In the midst of all this bad blood brewing, West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna jumped in to the side of West Ham fans which will no doubt endear him to the fans. The Italian showed he is as Hammer through and through when he liked a fan post mocking Payet on Twitter.
