Arnautovic has vowed to turn over a new leaf after the birth of his baby daughter, and having ended his 18-month international exile.

"I must keep myself under ­control," he said. "I have a big ­responsibility as a father. That helps me to be more sensible. It's better I keep my mouth shut. Let my feet do the talking."
