Playing Arnautovic 'not a good idea' - Pellegrini
Manuel Pellegrini said it was not a "good idea" for Marko Arnautovic to play for West Ham at Bournemouth amid continuing speculation over the forward's future.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Hammers this winter, with China considered an option, and his manager admitted he opted against playing the forward due to "another issue" aside from being injured.
"As a manager you must make decisions on the players that work better during the week," he told reporters.
"Marko has another issue so I thought that it was not a good idea for him to play."

Mourinho: I have already turned down three job offers
Jose Mourinho has claimed that he has already turned down three job offers from unspecified clubs since moving on from Manchester United.

Valverde not frustrated by De Jong and Vela wait

Mourinho hits out at Man Utd's transfer policy
Although United splashed out £89 million ($115m) on Paul Pogba and £75m ($97m) on Romelu Lukaku during his time in charge, Mourinho was left increasingly frustrated by what he perceived to be a lack of backing in the market by the Old Trafford board.
United have won seven games out of seven since Mourinho's sacking, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer presiding over a perfect record during his spell as interim replacement.
