Jose Mourinho explains what Henrikh Mkhitaryan can bring to his Man United team
Jose Mourinho is backing Henrikh Mkhitaryan to come good at Manchester United in the coming weeks and months
Jose Mourinho is backing Henrikh Mkhitaryan to show Manchester United fans what he is capable of in the coming weeks and months.
The Armenia international earned plenty of praise for his performance for the Red Devils on Thursday night when he was named man of the match in Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Feyenoord in the Europa League.
It was a welcome display from the summer signing, who has yet to establish himself as a regular fixture in the Manchester United first team following his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
And Mourinho believes that there is plenty more to come from the Armenia international as the season unfolds.
Speaking in an interview with United’s website before Sunday’s clash with West Ham, Mourinho said: “He needs a little bit more of that but the quality – we know why we bought him, we know we were buying a player with a high level of technical quality.
“[He is] very intelligent and very bright, the way he reads the game, so good for him because the performance was good.”
Manchester United will now prepare for their EFL Cup quarter-final clash against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils beat Manchester City 1-0 in the last round.
