Oh dear... Payet marks Marseille return with defeat

Dimitri Payet marked his return at Marseille with defeat.

Payet's Ligue 1 return ended in despair for Marseille as struggling Metz produced a shock 1-0 win.

Metz substitute Yann Jouffre provided the decisive moment of a dull contest eight minutes from time when goalkeeper Yohann Pele failed to deal with his 20-yard free-kick.

Payet left West Ham in a £25million move last weekend and made his second Marseille debut as a substitute in a Coupe de France victory over Lyon on Wednesday.

The France international was again left on the bench until the 55th minute.
