Video: Henrikh Mkhitaryan given big welcome in Russia by fans

by Sam Peoples

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was given a big welcome by fans out in Russia as Manchester United arrived for their game against FC Rostov.

Having been born in Armenia as well as playing for clubs in both Armenia and Ukraine, a lot of the early stages of Mkhitaryan’s career was out in Eastern Europe and fans clearly haven’t forgotten that.

Mkhitaryan scored on his return to Eastern Europe against Zorya Luhansk earlier in the Europa League – will he do the same against Rostov? Will he even play at all? These fans are certainly hoping to see the 28-year-old in action.

Here’s a video of the welcome Mkhitaryan was given:
