Henrikh Mkhitaryan has explained how he’s adapted to life in the Premier League since joining Manchester United last summer.
He arrived at Old Trafford in a deal worth £26.3million from Borussia Dortmund and following a difficult start, has settled into the squad and cemented his place in the first-team.
The Armenian has met the requirements of Jose Mourinho this campaign, with his goals seriously helping the team progress to the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm later this month.
Speaking about the side, Mkhitaryan has opened up about his changes since his transfer.
“What have I learned? I think the pace, the quickness and the strength because, being here, you have to adapt to the English Premier League and to the football. That is what I am doing now,” he said.
“I am really different on the football pitch. I try to be like a beast or a monster! I fight for every ball and try to do my best.
“Outside of the pitch, I am more quiet and more humble, and I don’t like to be very aggressive or anything like that.”
He’s scored ten goals so far this season, with four of his strikes nominated for the club’s goal of the season award.
Mkhityaran has been a brilliant addition to the squad and although he’s struggled at times with consistency, it’s clear that he’ll have an incredible impact in the team.
