West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic has hit back at Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville following heavy criticism from the ex-Manchester United star for his performance against Brighton a fortnight ago.
The Hammers were on the end of a 3-0 drubbing from Chris Hughton’s side, and following the game, pundit Neville took to prisoners in calling out Arnautovic for his performance.
“He thinks he’s Cristiano Ronaldo, that’s his problem, he thinks he’s better than he is.” said Neville of the £25 million summer transfer.
The Austria international however, is having none of it, and has now slammed Neville in typical Arnautovic fashion.
He said: “I respect what Gary Neville achieved as a player. He was brilliant at Manchester United and hats off to him.
“But what did he do as a coach at Valencia? His job is to criticise, that is 90 per cent of his job.
“I am not saying Gary Neville is a nobody. He has accomplished a lot in his life, he is a legend.
“But as a coach? Let him stay on the TV.”
