Sparky's nightmare


Filed: Wednesday, 28th March 2018
By: Staff Writer


Marko Arnautovic will be aiming to make new Southampton boss Mark Hughes eat his words when the latter visits the Olympic Stadium this weekend.

Hughes - known as 'Sparky' during his playing career - was recently appointed as the new Saints manager, but was still in charge of Stoke when he accused the Austrian international of "burning his bridges" with City supporters last December.

The Welshman was also seen gesticulating angrily towards Arnautovic - whom he referred to as a "f***ing ungrateful f***er" - when the latter was substituted by David Moyes towards the end of West Ham's 3-0 win at the bet365 Stadium.

And now West Ham's number seven will be hoping to rub further salt into Hughes' wounds when the two go head-to-head again this weekend in what is a must-win game for both teams, given their precarious positions in the Premier League.





Arnautovic goes into the game in peak form having scored twice for his country on Friday evening against Slovenia before grabbing another goal on Tuesday night in a 4-0 win over European minnows Luxembourg (see above).

He has already scored seven times for West Ham so far in his last 14 games, having failed to score in his first 13 appearances after moving from Stoke in a club record 25million switch.
