After two beautiful freekicks in 5 days for country and club, his manager (Slaven Bilic) has come to say Dimitri Payet is as good as David Beckham.
Payet has scored five direct freekicks for West Ham this season and most pundits are already linking his curve on the ball like that of the England lengend.
Bilic said: “You can’t say that anyone was better than Beckham than taking free-kicks,” he said
“But then again, you can say the same thing about Dimitri this season. In the space of 10 minutes we can name five or six great ones.
“The last one against Crystal Palace was unbelievable. Then for France. Old Trafford. Blackburn and Bournemouth. It all happened in a couple of months. The tempo he is putting them in is amazing.
“Of course teams will be worried about conceding free-kicks.”
