#5 West Ham should have sold Arnautovic
Former West Ham defender Tony Gale has stated that the club should have sold Marko Arnautovic to China. The Hammers superstar was all set to leave the club in this window but is now going to stay in London.
This has perhaps not gone down well with Gale, who admitted that while Arnautovic is a superb player, the Hammers should have sold him because of how he behaved in the last few weeks.
“Undoubtedly West Ham are a better team when Arnautovic plays, if he wants to play,” Gale said.
“But I’d have got rid of him. It kind of brought apathy into the camp before a game like the one against Wimbledon.”
Gale wondered as to how the fans will now react when he is on the pitch for the next matches as his decision to leave the Londoners was mainly motivated by money.
“It’ll be interesting now to see what kind of reception he gets off the fans because they know that was a money-instigated move.”
Gale suggested that there was a bit of greed in the heart of the Austrian and questioned as to what the player really wants.
“People will be asking him now: ‘What sort of money do you want?’
“Would he rather win the FA Cup or Carabao Cup and maybe have an outside chance of getting into the Europa League, or does he want to go to China, where you can probably go when you’re about 32, and pick up a few more quid?
“I think there was a bit of greediness involved there.”
