Marko Arnautovic signs new deal
West Ham United have announced that Marko Arnautovic has signed a contract extension after opting to put an end to speculation linking him with a move to China.
“First of all, this has not been an easy time for me and my family,” he admitted. “I said yesterday on my Instagram page that obviously it was a big offer, an interesting offer and me and my family took some time and thought about this because I think any human being would think about this. He told the club website
“Everyone who deals with this club knows I never, ever refused to play or refused to train. I was training every day. Why should I refuse? It was just hard for my head. Some people can deal with this, some people can’t deal with it.
“At the end of the day, I sat down with my family, I sat down with the people around me and I said stop all this talking, stop all this waiting, I’m going to go the coach and tell him ‘I’m ready to play’.
“I’m back and I can focus now completely on West Ham because I have committed to stay and I’m going to give everything.”
