Marko Arnautovic claims that the media is to blame for his suspension for the rest of the season by Werder Bremen.

Werder Bremen forward Marko Arnautovic has criticised the German media for exaggerating his off-pitch issues.

The 24-year-old and his teammate Eljero Elia have been suspended after being caught speeding on an Autobahn at 3am the day before Bremen's 1-0 away loss to Bayer Leverkusen last weekend.

"When I drop a lighter and the media sees it, it is written up as an explosion," he told News.at. "Mountains are made out of molehills.

"People bad-mouth me. That hurts. Nothing against the police, but they succeeded in tearing me apart. We want to destroy Arnautovic, we kick him because that is fun. Everybody gets a kick out of it.

"[Mario Balotelli] also has a bad image and still only plays for top clubs regardless. His coaches look at his sporting qualities."

Arnautovic joined Bremen from Twente in June 2010.
