Bilic piles more pressure on Arnautovic

bilic_main_3437996b-large_transpjliwavx4cowfcaekesb3kvxit-lggwcwqwla_rxju8Slaven Bilic watched Marko Arnautovic  produce a quality performance last night against Bolton but said – it’s not enough.

The former Stoke Player was Bilic’s top choice to join the Irons in the summer and the club splashed out £24 million to make it happen.

And Bilic has poured the pressure on him to ensure that he gives full value for money telling him it’s time “to push the borders.”

After the game the manager said: “I could have asked for more. I want him to do more. He’s got that quality and that something extra.

“I like him as a player but sometimes he gets happy with the few things that he does when I want him to push the borders.

“I know what he’s capable of and I want him to keep molesting the opposition and never be happy in a positive way. But of course he did the job here.

“After what happened last month, this is the beginning of the comeback for him.”

  1. Well said Billic. He needs to be pushed all the way to stop his bad behaviour and encourage him to perform to his limits. He cost enough so he must do enough.

  2. He’s already had a go at assaulting the opposition so the suggestion of molesting is… No frankly that’s just weird but I’m sure it’s been mistranslated 😀

  3. Dont rate Billic but absolutely nothing wrong in him saying that. A rare bit of good management.

  4. With you on that, Reggie

  5. Lets face it whoever we had managing us you would find fault with.The fans who say they dont rate Bilic wont rate whoever we have.

  6. ‘Molesting the opposition’ – steady on!
