Dimitri Payet was one of the best players in the Premier League last season and starred for France at Euro 2016 as well.
After starting this term rather slowly, the West Ham United midfielder has proved to be one of the most creative players in Europe despite failing to provide as many assists as he did last season.
The Hammers have seemingly regressed as well and Payet is desperate for a move away from the club. Given he’s 29 and in his prime, that ambition is understandable but he hasn’t exactly covered himself in glory with the way in which he’s gone about it.
The Frenchman has refused to play for his club as he tries to force through a transfer in January and with West Ham digging their heels in as well, it’s proving to be classic stand-off.
Payet isn’t the first player who has refused to take to the pitch though and the team at Copa90 have put together a top 10 list.
Which player stands out in the list?
