Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has explained his reasons for joining Borussia Dortmund instead of a host of other European clubs who were keen on signing him including Liverpool.
Mkhitaryan has admitted to being a fan of Jurgen Klopp’s side since facing them with former club Shakhtar Donetsk and also the beaten finalists’ style of play.
“Since we played with Shakhtar in the Champions League against BVB I’ve watched all Dortmund games on TV,” Mkhitaryan said.
“BVB have not only played fantastic football, but football that suits me. I thought this was a team where I can grow and develop,” the attacking midfielder added.
The playmaker then added that he just wants to play football regularly and that is his motivation and not the big money that comes with the territory.
“I have come to Dortmund to and not to sit on the bench as might initially have been the case in England.”
“Money is not so important in football. There’s only room for football. I live football, think football, feel football and if I play well, the money comes anyway,” concluded the Armenian international.
