Payet taunts Marseille pal Saliba on France call: They couldn't get Thuram out of retirement!

Olympique Marseille midfielder Dimitri Payet has enjoyed a dig at teammate William Saliba about his France debut.

The on-loan Arsenal defender made his Les Bleus debut last week, seeing action against Ivory Coast and South Africa.

OM skipper Payet said: “The selection of William?

"Yes, but that's because there were 14 injured behind him!

"At one point. It was either him, or they were calling (Lilian) Thuram back."

World Cup winner Thuram hung up the boots in 2008.
