Damien Delaney's Comments Sum Up How Ridiculous That Stunning Payet Free-Kick Was
By Mikey Traynor

Crystal Palace defender and now (sort of) retired Ireland international Damien Delaney is making a trend out of publicly commenting on the big moments that come from the Premier League matches he plays in, and hopefully he continues to do so.

Delaney took to Instagram last month to argue his case after he conceded a last minute penalty for a trip (or an alleged trip) on Liverpool's Christian Beneteke, but this time a more traditional media method has been used as the Palace man spoke to Yahoo Sports about that Dimitri Payet free-kick that everybody loved so much.

He also then bizarrely compared Payet to one of his teammates, a teammate that we have yet to see come close to Payet's efficiency from a dead ball.

When he [Payet] hit it as it went over the wall I thought that one's going into row Z, I swear to god.

I think someone in the wall shouted 'see ya' to Payet, I think Wayne Hennessey probably thought it as well.

Payet is like Bakary Sako; whatever they put on it, they get it down in time and it was a hell of a free-kick - not much anyone can do about it. I thought we were unfortunate to be 2-1 down but it is what it is.

Sako will be thanking Delaney for that compliment for sure.

And as for the lad who said "See ya" when the ball went up... To be fair, you can understand why:

It was a marvellous piece of skill from Payet, who just a week earlier did this in the colours of France:

He will surely be a contender for player of the year this season.
