Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been training alone at Manchester United and was pictured leaving the team’s Aon Training Complex having worked out alone.

Jose Mourinho has left him on the sidelines at Old Trafford and fans have grown frustrated with his exclusion from the recent matchday squads.

He made his switch from Borussia Dortmund this summer, signing a four-year contract for a fee of £23.6million, but reports suggest Mourinho is not convinced the Armenian has what it takes to handle the Premier League.

It’s an odd situation for Mkhitaryan and it’s hard to believe Mourinho has invested so much money into a player he is still uncertain of.

The Portuguese boss will be looking to ease Mkhitaryan back into football after he has made just one start, which was 45 minutes during the first-half of the Manchester derby defeat by City.

After claiming the Bundesliga Players’ Player of the Season award following a spectacular 2015-16 campaign with Dortmund, there were high expectations when he arrived in England.

However, he hasn’t been given the opportunity to prove himself and hopes are we see him in action against Fenerbahce on Thursday.
