Pundit explains why Man United fans should be very excited about Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is ready to be a huge hit at Manchester United next season, says Matt Le Tissier
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has all of the ingredients needed to be a star player for Manchester United next season, according to Matt Le Tissier.
The Armenia playmaker has earned plenty of praise for his performances in the second half of the season after initially struggling to make much of an impact at Old Trafford following his transfer from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Mkhitaryan has been a regular fixture in Jose Mourinho’s first team since the turn of the year and will be hoping to feature when Manchester United take on bitter local rivals Manchester City in Thursday’s derby clash.
The playmaker has scored eight goals in all competitions for Manchester United so far this season and will be hoping to help the Red Devils win the Europa League and finish in the top four this term.
And former Southampton star Le Tissier is expecting big things from the 28-year-old at Old Trafford next season.
Le Tissier told Sky Sports: “It’s a tough one, but I think he’s shown enough to demonstrate he will be a hit next season, certainly in the Europa league, having taken his time to get into the team.”
Manchester United are currently fifth in the Premier League table heading into Thursday’s crunch clash.
