Henrikh Mkhitaryan says he didn’t have to think twice about joining Arsenal when the opportunity presented itself in January.
Seemingly taking another little pop at the style of football played by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, the 29 year old told Four Four Two that the Gunners attacking approach was an important consideration for him.
“When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, ‘Yes, I want to do that, I didn’t think twice,'” he said.
“It’s important for me to play in an offensive team.”
The Armenian international has six assists and two goals since joining, and is pleased with how life at Arsenal has begun.
“I couldn’t have imagined a better start,” he said. “I’d missed playing offensively.
“I joined Arsenal because Wenger wanted me, not because he wanted to replace Sanchez. We are different players and characters, with different abilities and skills, so I’ll try my best to do everything for the club.”
“I want to write my name into Arsenal’s history and have my name as a legend here.
“I want to score goals, make assists and win trophies to make the fans happy.”
