Stoke striker Arnautovic: German press admit they miss me

Stoke City striker Marko Arnautovic admits he gets nagged by German journos saying they're missing him.

Arnautovic enjoyed a love-hate relationship with the local media during his time in the Bundesliga.

He said "I was young at Inter and did things I wouldn't do again. I can't do that now. I have a wife and child.

"But I'm seen as a bad boy in Austria. German journalists ring me and ask me to come back because their papers are empty now.

"I'm pleased with that. I really don't want to read s**t news about myself.

"I have done wrong things. Two of us are always spoken about in the press. David Alba (Bayern Munich left-back) is the angel and the sweet boy. Me? I'm the s**t one.

"In Austria, everything is my fault when we lose. Whatever I do it's not enough. If I score two, they ask why I haven't scored three. When I'm good, they love me like you love your Queen. When I play bad, I'm the worst.

"I'm here to show England what I can do."
