West Ham United have posted a rather unsubtle dig at Marko Arnautovic following his exit from the club, to the delight of fans.
The Austria international completed his move to Shanghai SIPG on Monday.
The club announced this via Twitter and followed that tweet with a picture of captain Mark Noble, and the accompanying words: “True Hammer”.

And fans are convinced that the second tweet is a dig at the former Stoke City man, who also asked to leave the club in January.
A deal has eventually been reached for a fee of £22.5m, Football FanCast sources understand, with the Hammers accepting a hit on the deal as they were so desperate to move the striker on.

Indeed, Noble has spent a total of 15 years at the Hammers, playing for the club 467 times.
And supporters love the shade being thrown by the Irons on social media.
