West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has thanked boss Slaven Bilic for the confidence he has shown in him this season.
The midfielder, a summer 2015 arrival from Marseille in a deal said to be worth around Â£10m, has been outstanding and could easily be considered the buy of the season.
He has won his place back in the France side and is almost certain to be involved with Euro 2016 this summer.
Payet has now thanked his former boss Marcelo Bielsa for his impact before moving on to praise Bilic for helping him at the Hammers.
“I learned a lot during my season with Bielsa,” said Payet. “He made me grow up as a man and in terms of my game. Something just clicked with him. He taught me some important fundamentals that still serve me well today.
“Right now, I’m lucky to have Slaven Bilic, who did everything to bring me to West Ham. He has done everything to see that I flourish on the pitch.”
