Knives worry Ar­nau­tovic

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport / Football -

West Ham striker Marko Ar­nau­tovic de­scribed his own es­cape from teenage street crime in his na­tive Aus­tria as he spoke out about the fa­tal stab­bing of five peo­ple – three of them teenagers – in Lon­don in the last week. Ar­nau­tovic, speak­ing at the launch of a club com­mu­nity project which sees him meet up with dis­ad­van­taged lo­cal school­child­ren, said: “When I was lit­tle, I didn’t al­ways have the best time. Some of my friends ended up in prison. How­ever, when you had some prob­lems you dealt with it with your hands. No one had a knife. Now it has changed.”
