Henrikh Mkhitaryan had a special message for Manchester United's fans following the club's tour of China

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has taken to social media to thank Manchester United’s fans in China for their support following the conclusion of their pre-season tour to Shanghai and Beijing.

United continued their preparations for the new campaign with a clash against Borussia Dortmund on Friday, before Monday’s derby game against Manchester City in Beijing was cancelled due to poor weather conditions.

Mkhitaryan has been getting used to life as a United player after becoming the club’s third signing of the summer transfer window earlier this month.

And the Armenia international used his personal Instagram account to reveal his delight at the welcome he and his team-mates were given in China as they prepared to jet back to the United Kingdom.

Mkhitaryan posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Monday and wrote: “Great to be in China for the first time in my life.

“People here are really passionate about football. Thank you Shanghai & Beijing!”

United are currently getting used to life under new manager Jose Mourinho following his appointment back in May.
