Henrikh Mkhitaryan had 'problem' with Jose Mourinho - Armenia coach

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's national coach has said he will become "better and even stronger" after leaving Manchester United for Arsenal.

Mkhitaryan joined United from Borussia Dortmund in 2016 but failed to hold down a regular starting spot, and Artur Petrosyan said he had been frustrated by Mourinho's failure to play Mkhitaryan.

The midfielder moved to the Emirates Stadium as attacker Alexis Sanchez went the other way, and Petrosyan said: "We are very happy with this transfer from Manchester United. His style of play will be better suited at Arsenal.

"It is my impression that I think Henrikh had a problem with the coach [Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford] and, at Arsenal, it will be another thing and not the same situation.

"There will not be so much pressure on him defensively."

He said Wenger liked Arsenal to play "better football" than United and added: "I think Wenger is better for Henrikh.

"He is always one of the best players in the Premier league but, under this manager he will become even stronger."

The Armenia coach said he was "not happy with Mourinho's decision not to play him."

He added: "It is his club, his team, he knows what he wants. I was sad he did not play the last matches. It is good he has left."
