Henrikh Mkhitaryan has taken to social media to send a heartfelt message to his mother on her birthday ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Middlesbrough on Sunday.

The Armenia international will be hoping to feature for Jose Mourinho’s men in the Premier League this weekend as the Red Devils bid to get their top-four hopes back on track.

Mkhitaryan was once again in fine form on Thursday night as he helped Manchester United book their place in the Europa League quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over Rostov at Old Trafford.

And the summer signing took some time away from training to post a special message to his mother on Saturday morning ahead of Sunday’s clash.

Mkhitaryan shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “A mother’s love is like nothing else in the world. Happy Birthday Mom!”
