Did you know?
Last year, Arnautovic was ruled out with a knee ligament injury sustained while playing with his dog.

What’s the deal?
Mark Hughes has snapped up the 6ft 4in Austrian winger. He is a colourful figure who short career has been punctuated with disciplinary problems and high profile bust-ups.

That includes a training ground bust-up with Werder Bremen team-mate Sokratis Papastathopoulos earlier this year.


What do they say?

“He is a fantastic person but has the attitude of a child.”
Jose Mourinho, who coached Arnautovic during a loan spell at Inter Milan.
