Henrikh Mkhitaryan sends message to Jose Mourinho ahead of Man United v Tottenham

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is determined to hold down a regular spot in the Manchester United team in the coming weeks

Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes that he has already proved to Jose Mourinho and Manchester United that he is a top player.

The Armenia international has endured something of a difficult start to life at Old Trafford following his transfer to the club from Borussia Dortmund over the summer.

Mkhitaryan struggled for both form and fitness in the opening weeks of the season but has recently broken back into the starting line-up and has produced some man of the match displays for the Red Devils.

And the summer signing believes that he is now starting to prove himself as a key player for the Red Devils as he looks to establish himself as a regular starter in the coming months.

Mkhitaryan is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “I started playing so I’m positive.

“I think positively and I am glad to have more playing time for the future because it’s something that is not predictable.

“You have to be ready for every situation. I was ready and I showed I am a top-level player. It doesn’t matter if I am going to play or not, I am always ready to help the team.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their home Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.
