Dimitri Payet insisted he does not envy Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain as the Marseille attacker said he plays for France’s “biggest club”.
Marseille – third in the standings – travel to Paris for Sunday’s blockbuster Le Classique against Ligue 1 leaders PSG.
PSG are set to welcome back star Neymar as the cashed-up capital club look to further strengthen their advantage atop the table in their pursuit of a fifth crown in six seasons.
But Payet stoked the fire ahead of Marseille’s trip, taking aim at the individuals of PSG.
“I do not envy Paris. I play in France’s biggest club,” France international Payet said.
“And I have a team. We saw it recently, it’s always better to play as a team rather than to pile up individuals.”
Marseille are third and 13 points behind PSG amid their eight-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1.
Payet has scored four goals and tallied seven assists for Rudi Garcia’s men.
