Jose Mourinho watched Marko Arnautovic's Austria take on Russia in a World Cup warm-up match.

The Austria international, who also contributed six assists during the 2017/18 campaign, has four years left to run on his contract at the London Stadium.

United manager Jose Mourinho was in the stands on Wednesday night as Austria claimed a 1-0 friendly win over Russia, with Arnautovic providing the assist for the winner.

Arnautovic previously worked with Mourinho during their time together at Inter Milan in 2009.

He made only three appearances for Inter during an unsuccessful loan spell at the San Siro from FC Twente and subsequently joined Werder Bremen in the summer of 2010.
