Mkhitaryan Has A Subtle Dig At Mourinho's Man Utd?

Arsenal playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan appears to have had a subtle dig at his former club Manchester United and manager Jose Mourinho with recent comments of his.  

Reports: Chelsea Star Set To Replace Mata At Man Utd

The Armenia international, who struggled to adapt to life at Old Trafford, spent only one and a half seasons with the Red Devils before leaving for the Emirates in a part-exchange deal that saw Alexis Sanchez go the other way.

In an exclusive interview recently, the 29-year-old said that when the option of the moving to the Gunners was presented to him, he felt he could not say no, and it seems his decision had much to do with the style of football the North London club is known to play.

"When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, 'Yes, I want to do that', I didn't think twice," Mkhitaryan told FourFourTwo.

"It's important for me to play in an offensive team. I couldn't have imagined a better start. I'd missed playing offensively.

"I joined Arsenal because Wenger wanted me, not because he wanted to replace Sanchez. We are different players and characters, with different abilities and skills, so I'll try my best to do everything for the club."

Since joining Arsene Wenger's side in January, Mkhitaryan has made 11 appearances, scoring two goals and assisting a further six strikes.
