Football fans can be awfully blunt sometimes, and West Ham supporters are only helping to support that claim. The Hammers have had the news confirmed to them that their side will be competing in the PL Asia Cup in China as part of their pre-season, and the fans have been calling for Marko Arnautovic to be left out there after the competition.

If the West Ham United board expected to book a trip to China and not have fans giving them jip over Arnautovic given the way the Austrian acted during the January window then they have another thing coming. West Ham fans would probably have let Arnie go for free when he started kicking up, and now that he’s not got his move the fans have all noticed a massive dip in his form and already poor attitude.
Back in the January transfer window Arnautovic supposedly ended the speculation of a move to China when he signed a new West Ham contract, which you can read about in this article, published at the time by Goal.com. However, it seems there is bad blood between Arnie and the Hammers, and with a trip to China in the summer, the Irons would have no problems with leaving their stroppy Austrian in Asia.
You can read the fans’ calls to dump Arnautovic below:

The Irons are more than prepared to leave their Austrian hitman in Asia, and it will be interesting to see whether the rumours of his move to the far east resurface when the transfer window opens.
