The offensive midfielder should play his first Serie A match on Sunday against Sassuolo. Mkhitaryan is ready for his debut.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is what Roma‘s fans were waiting for. Paulo Fonseca needed a new left winger with international experienced and Petrachi brought the Armenian star into his group when the transfer market window was almost over.
But expectations must be honored. Everyone is waiting to see his immense qualities. Mkhitaryan should be a starter in Sunday’s match against Sassuolo at the Stadio Olimpico.
Will the Armenia international need time to settle in to Italian football?
Probably yes even if there isn’t much time for him. He joined Roma on loan for 12 months and therefore he must show his talent immediately.
“My teammates can help me to adapt to the team, the city, and everything else. But it’s up to me to integrate to the team,” said Mkhitaryan. “Time is short, though. It’s a one year loan. I will do my best to help the team.“
