The Manchester United midfielder was thrilled to help Jose Mourinho's side secure their progress in the FA Cup
Henrikh Mkhitaryan sent a message to Manchester United supporters after their 4-0 win against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup fourth round.
The Armenia international scored the home side’s third goal in a comfortable win against the Championship side as the summer signing took his tally to four goals since his big-money switch to Manchester United.
Mkhitaryan was the third of Jose Mourinho’s four summer arrivals after the attacking midfielder completed a switch to Manchester United in a £30m deal from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
The 28-year-old got his first taste of FA Cup football on Sunday afternoon as Jose Mourinho’s side looked to secure their place in the fifth round of the competition.
Mkhitaryan posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“Excited to make it to the 5th round as we aim to win this beautiful trophy #emiratesfacup 🏆 Congrats to Joel and Axel for their debuts👏 #mufc”
