The Armenia international started the season in fine form and bagged five assists for the Red Devils in August.

However, the midfielder was dropped from the match day squads to face Newcastle United and FC Basel, and Mourinho reveals he was not happy with the player's performances.

“I wasn’t happy with his last performances,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

“I’m not speaking about one or two, I’m speaking about three, four or five.

“He started the season very well and after that, step by step, he was disappearing. His performance levels in terms of goal-scoring and assists, high pressing, recovering the ball high up the pitch, bringing the team with him as a No.10, were decreasing.

“That was enough, because the others worked to have a chance.

“Everybody works to have a chance. It’s as simple as that.”
