Jamie Redknapp: This new Man United signing is my player to watch
Jamie Redknapp can't wait to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan in action for Manchester United in the Premier League
Jamie Redknapp has revealed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the player he is most looking forward to watching in the Premier League this season.
The Armenia international signed for the Red Devils earlier in the summer as Jose Mourinho moved quickly to bring in some midfield reinforcements ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
Mkhitaryan is gearing up for his first taste of Premier League action this weekend as the Red Devils prepare for their trip to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.
He has already helped United win their first trophy of the season by beating Leicester City 2-1 to lift the Community Shield at Wembley last weekend.
And former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur man Redknapp is tipping Mkhitaryan to be a star player for United in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford.
Asked to pick the player he is most excited to watch this season, Redknapp told Sky Sports News HQ: “Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
“I like him, I think he’s a very talented number 10. Obviously you’ve got the likes of Pogba and Leroy Sane but I like watching a player who can thread a ball through the eye of a needle.
“That’s why I can’t wait to see him show those qualities.”
United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
