Armenian forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed that the attacking style of Arsenal suits his game and he is able to play better unlike when he was lacing his boots for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, this is according to reports.
After so much dilly dallying, Mkhi joined Arsenal as part of the swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move the opposite direction. The Chile forward was in the final year of his contract with Arsenal and refused to extend his stay with club, which necessitated the swap deal.
Mkhitaryan was signed by Jose Mourinho last season as part of his team-rebuilding effort but the Armenian attacker struggled up until this season to replicate the same form and performances he was known for during his days at the Signa Iduna Park with Borrussia Dortmund.
He was openly criticised by Jose Mourinho before Jesse Lingard usurped him to a place in the team of the Red Devils. Nonetheless, Mkhitaryan has won Man of the Match award under the Arsene Wenger twice and he is currently enjoying his game at Arsenal.
Mkhi spoke with the press ahead of Arsenal Europa League game against CSKA and he told
told Four Four Two: “When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, ‘Yes, I want to do that’, I didn’t think twice.
“It’s important for me to play in an offensive team. “I couldn’t have imagined a better start. I’d missed playing offensively.
“I joined Arsenal because Wenger wanted me, not because he wanted to replace Sanchez. We are different players and characters, with different abilities and skills, so I’ll try my best to do everything for the club.”
