Mkhitaryan: Wenger’s Arsenal inspired me as a kid


Henrikh Mkhitaryan has explained why he was a big Arsenal fan as a kid.

The Armenian joined the north Londoners last month in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United.

“I loved the way that Arsenal were playing at the time,” he said.

“I loved the way Arsene Wenger was treating his players, I loved the way that everything was happening around the club.

“So it was just a dream, it was a drive to say ‘why not? I’m supporting Arsenal and I want to play for that club as well.'”
