Speaking in his press conference, Bilic said:
“Let’s get serious. I have a situation with a player. It is Dimitri Payet. He wants to leave.”
“It started 10 days ago when the window started.”
“This team, the staff, we gave him everything, we were always there for him. I feel let down. I feel angry.
“We have said we don’t want to sell our best players but Payet does not want to play for us.
“We are not going to sell him. I spoke to the chairman and this is not a money issue. We gave him a long contract because we want him to stay.

“I don’t think he will go this window but it will be hard to keep him happy.
“I am concentrated on the game and don’t want to talk about transfers. There are still over two weeks to go.
“I expect from him to come back and to show commitment and determination to the team like the team has shown to him.”
