Armenia national team boss, Artur Petrosyan, has opened up on the issues Henrikh Mkhitaryan had with Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho.
Petrosyan claims Mourinho “had a problem” with the player and put too much “pressure” on him to do defensive work.
He also expressed his happiness that Mkhitaryan has left for Arsenal, in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez join United.
“I think Henrikh had a problem with the United coach and at Arsenal, it will be another thing and not the same situation. There will not be so much pressure on him defensively.
“Yes, he (Wenger) likes them to play better football. I think Wenger is better for Henrikh.
“I think the (Manchester United) fans liked him. I think that means he did something for the club.
“I am not happy with Mourinho’s decision not to play him, but it is his club, his team — he knows what he wants. It is good he has left,” Petrosyan said.
