Marko Arnautovic: Set to be granted a second chance

Marko Arnautovic: Set to be granted a second chance

The pair were dropped by former coach Thomas Schaaf toward the end of last season after a string of disciplinary problems.

They spent the last month of the campaign training alone, with no contact with the first team at all.

Dutt, however, believes they could make a difference next season and he is ready to give them another chance.

"Elia and Arnautovic are two very special spices which could do our recipe a lot of good," he said.

"If we get things right, then they could enrich any meal."

Dutt is also on the lookout for two new players to strengthen his squad after losing Kevin de Bruyne and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

"We need a forward and a defender," he told the Bild newspaper. "And it is also possible that we sell some more players and bring a few in during August."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
