Team Arnautovic return Coates attack with interest


ArnautStoke chairman Peter Coates has been told to clean up the ‘garbage’ at his club rather than attack West Hm new boy Marko Arnautovic.

Coates launched a blistering attack on our Β£24 million signing for a lack of loyalty but has now had it returned with interest by the attacker’s brother Daniel who is also his agent.

Speaking to The SunΒ he said: “Why Marko left Stoke I won’t tell you.Β I can only say that Mr Coates should clean up his own garbage within the club walls before pointing fingers at anyone outside of it.

“What exactly I mean is up to the club to reveal, as this is the last time I will comment on anything Stoke say.

“I’d personally like to thank Stoke for the courage they had four years ago when they signed my brother.

“I would, in my own and Marko’s names especially, like to thank Stoke fans and Mark Hughes for all the love they have shown.

β€œBut to be honest, I was expecting a little bit more respect from certain people within the club instead of reading attacking articles.”

    • Lazurus. rises like a salmon says:

      We always used to score up there πŸ‘™ the graveyard was always a quiet place to go , nudge nudge wink wink 😈 it was the walking sideways on Sunday morning that was the problem πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ they loved a cockney up there πŸ˜‰

    A chairman from another football club in an interview with Talksport…no it must be a mistake..i have read so many times only ours would do it..can i please have this verfied as the truth..airing his dirty laundry in public..but only our owners would do that i regularly read…

      Shocking ain’t it James. Levy was doing it yesterday too. This is all Sullivan’s fault πŸ˜‚

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Lets be honest he wasn’t loyal, like Payet he collected his signng on and loyalty fees and moved on anyway, having said that Stoke have seen a massive return on him from the Β£3m or so they paid so at the end of the day no one is losing out of this. I think the Arnautovic camp should keep it quiet, its not cool to say he has moved to us because we are bigger club or whatever, just seems a bit off with me like he is disrespecting the people that gave him a chance but as has been said by others I guess thats modern footballers for you, Joe Hart is telling people how he loved us and all that rubbish, they must thing we are thick, they come to us because we offer them something that makes sense financially or career wise for them, footballers are ,mercenaries.

    • John says:

      I’m not sure that’s true 32. He hardly compares to Payet, he was at Stoke for 4 years and is moving to his “his bigger club” in this prime at 28 years old. I think Stoke fans will respect that. Coates should’ve kept his mouth shut (all Chairmen take note) because he’s on a bit of a loser here, if Coates showed ambition he would’ve turned West Ham down. My guess is Coates reckons Β£24M is good business.

      And who wouldn’t wait for the bonus to be paid before you hand the notice in? I’ve done it enough times!

        See 32 mercenaries everywhere πŸ˜‰ I would becarefull what you say john about Mr Coates , he used to be a para back in the day πŸ’£ and even closer to home , he was a regional manager of wimpy,s πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        • John says:

          Not a regional manager of Winpey? I had no idea I take it all back. You just never know do you? Scary, could’ve found myself between 2 baps there πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          • Lazurus. rises like a salmon says:

            In a pickle you might say πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

            Hi John, he had only just signed a new contract making him the highest paid player in Stoke history for which he would have received a signing / loyalty bonus first sniff of some extra cash and he was off, I don’t mind of course I am happy that we have got him, I really rate him as a player but I wouldn’t consider loyalty as one of his assetts πŸ™‚

          • John says:

            Stop confusing the issue with facts #32.

  • Lazurus. rises like a salmon says:

    Didn’t you like my fishy song hughy 🎣 only a bit of fun πŸ˜‚ bit harsh ? I don’t know any maccydee minion songs πŸ˜‚ its not as if john was going to sue me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • John says:

      I was going to sue you but I was laughing. I agree a bit harsh of our Hughie but I’m saying no more otherwise I’ll be in trouble πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Best behaviour at all times is me. πŸ‘

  • Gaz says:

    Footballer moves to what might be percieved as a better job on better money and they are mercenary.
    Anyone else does it and no one bats an eyelid as its logical to move somewhere where you will earn more if someone headhunts you.
    I never tend to blame footballers too much as i have never walked in their shoes.Would the pull of an extra 50k a week sway me to move if i was one of them.If i hold my hands up and im honest,yeah probably it would.

  • Lazurus. rises like a salmon says:
