Arnautovic grateful for fans' support

Marko Arnautovic says he is delighted to have built a rapport with the West Ham fans since moving from Stoke City.

The 28-year-old Austrian, currently in Miami with the rest of the first team squad is rapidly becoming a crowd favourite and has been tipped by many as a potential KUMB Player of the Year, following a decent start to his career in east London.

And the winger, who is settling down into life in London with wife Sarah following a £24million move from Stoke City last summer says the welcome he has received from the fans has helped create a special bond between the two.

"The fans are always important," he told whufc.com. "I know they are disappointed [with our recent form], but I also know that against Southampton the stadium is going to be full and they are going to be right behind us.

"We need them, because without the fans you are not much in football. I have a good connection with them and even when they boo us, it doesn’t matter. I will always be behind them and I will always love when they support us.

"We know this is a hard time, a tough time for them, but also for us. We are in a hard situation but if we are all together, work hard together, and keep the team and the fans and everyone involved with West Ham together, then we can come out of this situation."

Arnautovic, West Ham's leading goalscorer this season with seven to his name (all scored in the Premier League) is set to appear next for his nation when they face Slovenia (23 March) and Luxembourg (27 March) in international friendlies.
