West Ham fans reinvent Dimitri Payet chant to mock misfiring winger Töre

It's got a ring to it.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 12 months, you’ll probably be aware of the fact that West Ham fans have a chant for Dimitri Payet.

You know, the one where they don’t think you’ll understand.

Hammers supporters have accused their Arsenal counterparts of nabbing it for Mesut Özil, while versions exist for Dele Alli, Yohan Cabaye, and a few others who we don’t have space for here.

The Payet version was out in force at the London Stadium this afternoon, as the Frenchman scored one of the goals of the season so far in West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

But the former Marseille playmaker wasn’t the only player to get that treatment from the home crowd.

To say Gökhan Töre has struggled to impress since arriving on loan from Beşiktaş would be an understatement.

The Turkish international winger arrived with a big reputation, but all the signs so far point to him returning to Istanbul at the end of the season.

With Payet, Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini preferred to the 24-year-old by West Ham fans, many were surprised to see him handed a start against Boro.

But Töre struggled once more and was withdrawn at half-time, seemingly prompting some to rush to give him his own song before he goes back to Turkey.

Well, we say ‘his own song’.

For those of you who struggled to make out some of the words, here you go:

We’ve got Töre

Gökhan Töre

I just don’t think you understand

He gets the fucking ball

He does fuck all

We’ve got Gökhan Töre

Even if Töre’s spell in East London only lasts the one season, at least the fans will have their memories.

Okay, memory.
