Liverpool hero Stan Collymore has taken a dig at West Ham United star Marko Arnautovic and claimed that the Austrian does not have much to his personality.
The Hammers have so far endured a mixed start to the season but recovered well after losing their opening four games.
Arnautovic has managed to maintain the good form which he showed towards the latter half of last season as he has 5 goals from 11 appearances and one assist.
The Austrian has clearly endeared himself to many Hammers supporters but whether he is truly dedicated to the club looks unlikely. The former Inter Milan man did recently suggest that he is open to taking his career elsewhere in order to experience European football.
It is hard to fault Arnautovic if he wants to play in Europe. After all, he is now 29-years-old and as an attacker, he probably only has another 3 good years left in him, however he could have been better in terms of how he expressed his desire.
In his weekly column for the Daily Mirror (November 20, page 51), Collymore wrote via HITC:
“I said a couple of months ago that Marko Arnautovic didn’t have a personality you could rely on and one or two West Ham fans got upset with me.
“But, actually, it’s not what he has been doing on the pitch that has backed me up, it’s the fact that when he does do it on the pitch, he feels he deserves better than the Hammers.
“It’s looking a lot like the Dimitri Payet situation to me.”
