Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Wenger great but I’m happy with Emery

Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed he is happy playing under Unai Emery.

The 29-year-old was signed by Arsene Wenger in January and have made 17 appearances under the Frenchman.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal from Man Utd during the January transfer window in a swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez head in the opposite direction.

Speaking to Arsenal’s website, Mkhitaryan said:

“I’m doing my best every day, every hour and every minute to become even stronger.

“I always had my dreams, I always had my ambitions and I always wanted to chase them. I wanted to fulfil them because it was very important to me and my family.

“I was working hard, I wasn’t taking a day off and I was always working hard on myself. Even if I was good at one thing, I was always trying to improve it even more. I think that’s it.

“It’s always nice to be a part of the history at this club because Arsenal is a big club and everyone knows that being in this club means a lot.

“As well for myself, I’m very happy that I could have Arsene Wenger as a manager and I’m very happy to have Unai Emery as well as manager.

“I appreciate people that want to try and help Arsenal achieve more because I know Arsenal is a team that has to be playing in the Champions League and is a team that has to fight for trophies in England. What we’re trying to do is to bring the Arsenal level back.”
