Man United signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan sends message to Jurgen Klopp

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is grateful for the guidance shown to him by Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted that he is thankful to Jurgen Klopp for the impact he had on his career during his spell at Borussia Dortmund.

The Armenia international has been getting used to life in the Premier League following his summer transfer to Old Trafford from Dortmund last year.

The playmaker initially made a slow start in the English top flight but has found his form in recent weeks and has been named man of the match for the Red Devils on numerous occasions in recent weeks.

The Manchester United playmaker says he is grateful to Klopp for the guidance he showed him during their time together in the Bundesliga.

Mkhitaryan is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “I am thankful to Klopp. He worked on my personality and the psychological part.

“At Dortmund, I was very stressed after a few games when we were playing really bad.

“Klopp showed me the way. He supported me and told me I had to keep my head up because good things were coming. He helped me to become a player.”
