New Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed the climax of his time at Old Trafford citing the Europa League triumph and his boxing day Scorpion kick as his best times.
The 29-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at Arsenal in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez who has moved in the opposite direction to Manchester United.
“I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Manchester United players and staff and especially the fans for your love, passion, and support,” Mkhitaryan posted on Instagram.
“I enjoyed having the honour of contributing to the history of your great club by winning the Europa League Cup.
I will always cherish the memory of that moment and that match. And of my Boxing Day scorpion kick and of hearing the song ‘Whoa Mkhitaryan…’ every time I stepped onto the pitch.
“I could name many more memories, I enjoyed every moment we shared and cheered together.
At this stage of my career, I simply have to enjoy myself on the pitch and play. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the best of luck to all of you! Life goes on.”
