Former player compares West Ham hero to Arsenal superstar

payetAn argument has brewed in the Transfer Tavern this evening, as quotes from a former footballer have led to arguments between West Ham United and Arsenal fans.

It all sparked because of claims made by Trevor Sinclair, who stated that in his eyes Dimitri Payet is on the same level as Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, despite the latter being a bigger and more worldwide name than his French counterpart.

Fans of the Hammers have claimed Payet is just as good all season and Trevor Sinclair agrees as, speaking exclusively to 888poker.com, he gave his view on the matter.

“I think Ozil is a special player, he’s a world cup winner and he’s been very instrumental in Arsenal’s play this year but I also think Payet has. The fact that he’s come into the Premier League in his first season and been as influential and got as many plaudits as he has shows we are talking about a top, top player.”

“Arsenal has a superior squad and are going for the title this year whereas Payet doesn’t have as strong a squad around him yet he’s still been exceptional in the chances he’s creating. He works hard for the team, he’s possibly more dangerous scoring goals than Ozil, and I definitely feel comfortable putting them in the same breath.”

Our landlord thinks there is some way to go before Payet is genuinely on Ozil’s level but he’s adamant he has the capability to reach those standards and he’s urged you all to read the full interview, by heading to 888poker.com.
