Mkhitaryan will succeed at Arsenal – Rooney
Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney has stated that he expects new Arsenal signing, Henrikh Mkhitaryan to become an instant success for the Gunners after sealing a move away from the Old Trafford this January with Alexis Sanchez going in the opposite direction.
The former Borussia Dortmund star had a great evening on Saturday in a scintillating display for the Gunners in their 5-1 dismantling of Rooney’s Everton.
The Gunners shattered the Toffees in a beautiful attacking display that could have produced even more goals. The Armenian International never lived up to the expectation that was projected of him in United and the former United Captain agrees that his former club doesn’t suit the player’s style of play.
Rooney remarked that an offensive team set-up in Wenger’s Arsenal will mean that Mkhitaryan will play with the attacking instinct and freedom he enjoyed in his best form he displayed in Dortmund.
While speaking with Metro, the England legend said: “I think he is better suited to Arsenal,”
“I saw it in training with him, he’s a very talented player. At United, he didn’t get the freedom he really wanted to perform like he had at Dortmund.”
“It was a different style and at Arsenal, he’ll have players around him. He’ll create goals, he’ll score goals and I think he’ll kick on.”
