Dimitri Payet Injures Keeper With Filthy Piece Of Skill On Way To Goal

In September, the impossibly talented French attacker Dimitri Payet proudly confirmed that he is, in fact, a massive "dickhead:" “It’s one of my specialties,” he said. “It’s a little game. When I want to piss everyone off, I do it.”
On Tuesday, Payet’s dickheadedness was on full display in Marseille’s 2-0 victory over Strasbourg in Ligue 1. With Marseille leading 1-0 in the 87th minute, Payet got on the end of a ball from Clinton N’Jie and was through on goal with only keeper Alexandre Oukidja to beat.
A fake pass/step over sent Oukidja the wrong way, and Payet comfortably finished after that dirty piece of business.

Unfortunately for Strasbourg — trailing 2-0 with only a couple minutes remaining — they then had to use their final substitution on replacing Oukidja, who’d been injured by Payet’s filth.

What a supremely gifted dickhead that man is.
