The Armenian playmaker has said that Jose Mourinho doesn’t care about how the team plays.
As soon as the announcement was made, Henrikh Mkhitaryan‘s future had been subject to a lot of uncertainty due to the sour relationship between the two during their time at Manchester United. The Armenian moved to Arsenal in a controversial swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez under the reign of Mourinho at Old Trafford.
As it turned out, Mkhitaryan signed a contract extension with Giallorossi and Mourinho was said to be happy with the playmaker’s continuity.
Now, the 32-year-old has revealed what the former Tottenham gaffer could possibly bring to the Italian capital club next season, stating that he always looks to instil a winning mentality.
Mkhitaryan said: “Mourinho is very ambitious. He always wants to win. He doesn’t care if we play good or bad football. It’s all about the three points.
“Everyone knows he has won almost everything there is to win.
“I don’t want to talk about the past. We discussed it together and started from scratch on a different level. I know what he asks of his players, and I am ready to give my all.”
Mourinho was heavily criticised for his debacles at Tottenham and Man Utd, and many wrote off the Portuguese is no more at the elite level than he used to be.
Nonetheless, Roma kept the faith in the former Chelsea boss as they cite him as the manager who can take the club back to the heydays.
Mourinho has already made his presence felt in the transfer window as Rui Patricio’s signing has been announced recently, while Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is closing in on a move to the Italian capital.
