West Ham winger Antonio: Payet a great teammate. Nicest guy ever

West Ham winger Michail Antonio says Dimitri Payet is raring to go this season.

The France midfielder has endured a difficult start to the season with Slaven Bilic's side, having played just 24 minutes of Premier League football due to injury.

“[Dimitri Payet] is just quality. Off the pitch he's the nicest guy ever, so down to earth, so chilled, always has time for everyone.

"Hopefully he can come back nice and fit and pick up where he left off.

"He takes the mick with some of the boys in training with some of his skills," Antonio told Match of the Day magazine.
