Arnautovic dashes off to airport

Pictures of Marko Arnautovic sitting in Heathrow lounge shortly after today’s game went viral on social media with speculation he was about to hop on a plane to China. The mystery was soon cleared up by the player himself when he posted an Instagram photo of himself and his wife saying ‘Off to Vienna, Happy to see the family for the Serbian New year’

A club insider revealed that all the first team players have until Tuesday morning off and a number of them were taking the oppotunity to jet away for short breaks and that supporters shouldn’t read anything into Arnie’s departure from Heathrow this evening.

Many supporters today thought the Austrian player seemed to be waving goodbye to fans as he was substituted at the London Stadium during the Hammers 1-0 victory over Arsenal. There was no strop today by the 29-year-old striker and Pellegrini patted him on the back before he pulled on a training top and sat calmly on the bench.

  1. Who knows what’s going on ? , only he himself knows . Too much speculation . All I know is that he didn’t perform today . Didn’t look interested . Big money is the consequence of TV & Skysports . If money is the motive then let’s forget football teams and fans supporting them .
    If he doesn’t make a statement of commitment then it rather looks like goodbye . We don’t need players like that . Is he afraid the rise of players like Anderson , Nasri or Rice are too much competition ?. Maybe he believes he is better than the Club !!? . He neeeds to explain himself and his desire . If he wants to do a Payet we don’t need him ..

  2. Sick of it just sort it one way or another so give him a big pay rise if he don’t want it then sell but at no less than £60 million . Great result today lads & well done Declan . Keep it going lads let’s see where we can finish .Onwards and Upwards . COYI ⚒

  3. Spot on Kevin. Take the money, as much as possible and move on. I have a strange feeling that we have players (including Perez??) who can step up to the challenge. I mentioned on previous posts that we scored 13 goals when he was out injured during December. Difficult to find a suitable replacement in Jan window but in Pelle I trust. COYI minus Arnie
