Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville claims that West Ham’s Dimitri Payet reminds him of a certain Carlos Tevez, who occupies a significant part in West Ham’s history. The striker may have played for a very short period of time at Upton Park. However, he helped them remain in the Premier League. The club received a lot of benefits as a result of it. Tevez went on to play for Manchester United and City in the English league before moving to Juventus. He has now returned to his home country where he is playing with Boca Juniors.
However, the English league and its fans have not forgotten the impact may be Tevez at West Ham. Gary Neville, particularly, says that he is reminded of the Argentine when he seesPayet on the pitch. The French international has been a major signing for the club. He has contributed immensely in the three major away victories against Arsenal, Liverpool, and City. Even though this good form has not seen him recalled to the French national team, the 28-year-old is definitely on his way to making any impact in the league.Payet’s recent excellent performance came in the game against Newcastle United when he managed to score a brace.
“Just because of the size and stature of him and the way in which he plays, he’s a little bit like Tevez. He’s almost bull-like, with big strong thighs and upper body. He’s always involved in the game. It’s not just the actual skill and the goals. He actually looks like he works hard and he’s playing almost street football. He’ll just go and chase after the ball. That power, that pace seems ideally suited to the Premier League. He looks like a great signing,” said Neville, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports.
