Former Manchester United player Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been speaking about his move to Arsenal, and seemingly aimed a dig at his ex-boss Jose Mourinho.
Many criticised the way Mourinho used the Armenian playmaker, who struggled to establish himself in United’s first team since his arrival.
Mkhitaryan said he is looking forward to playing "attacking football" at the Gunners, which many have speculated is a sly dig at his former manager, who has been criticised for being too defensive at times.
“Of course it's very important to have respect from your manager,” he said, according to the Daily Mail.
“I know that he's demanding and he likes his players to explore.
“He was one of the (reasons) to join Arsenal as well because everyone knows he's a great manager.
“I've known him for a long time and of course it was not very difficult to make this decision to come to Arsenal, because I think the way that Arsenal play (make) it a dream for every player to come here and play offensive football.”
Mkhitaryan played 63 games for United, scoring 13 goals and assisting a further 11 strikes.
