People Think They Know What Mark Hughes Called Marko Arnautovic When He Was Subbed Off
Stoke City vs West Ham was delayed due to a major power outage on Saturday afternoon, but Mark Hughes probably wishes that the game was called off after an abysmal performance from his side.
A power surge affected both the club generators and mains supply, which meant home and away supporters were stood outside of the bet365 Stadium for a long period. They probably should have went home.
It was certainly a happy return for former Stoke player Marko Arnautovic, who received a not so friendly welcome throughout the game.
Tempers flared when it took Arnautovic an age to leave the field of play, with Hughes visibly furious at his former player for walking towards the dugout rather than running.
People are now saying that Hughes called him an 'ungrateful fu**er' on his way to the dugout, something that he may later regret.

Fans appeared to throw things at the Austrian international, but it was the 28-year-old who had the last laugh after West Ham eventually went onto win the game 3-0 after goals from Noble, Sakho and Arnautovic himself.
Gary Lineker pretty much summed up his afternoon, saying: "After about 33 efforts on goal and being booed the entire game by the Stoke fans, Arnautovic finally scores against his former club. Did he celebrate? Too right he did."
