Dimitri Payet has been West Ham’s star player this season.

Speaking to talkSPORT, West Ham coach Edin Terzic has raved about Dimitri Payet, claiming that the Frenchman can do things that cannot be taught.

Terzic said: “I think this is the hardest part [of the Premier League], as every team is organised and with good defending. The hardest part is to find the solution to create chances. Dimitri has some abilities and skills that you can’t teach. He’s very gifted, and of course we give him some freedom [upfront].”

Payet has been one of the stars of the Premier League season, and has been a key figure behind West Ham’s rise to the upper echelons of the table.

If he did not miss a run of matches through injury, the Hammers would probably be higher in the table than they currently are, as the playmaker is the key figure in West Ham’s team.

He is there to split open defences, and teams are starting to set up deep against the Hammers, meaning Payet’s impact is incredibly vital.

He can play those passes and show off the skills that split open defences, and Terzic claims that many of the things Payet can do cannot be taught to the average player.

He is technically gifted, and is a real star, and Payet will be hoping to stay injury free for the rest of the season so he can lead the Hammers to European football.
