The Armenian star is happy in the Italian capital. Mkhitaryan spoke about his decision to join Roma and the ability of his coach Fonseca.
There’s a moment when a radical change is necessary. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been able to change and start a new professional adventure away from the United Kingdom.
“When Mino Raiola called me to talk about Roma, I didn’t think about it twice and I have no regrets,” Mkhitaryan said to the Armenian portal Vivaro News. “I felt the fans’ appreciation since the very first day. I like the people of Rome a lot.”
Paulo Fonseca plays him on the offensive left flank. Mkhitaryan shifts towards the center sometimes and he is capable of playing as a trequartista behind Dzeko as well.
The Armenia international believes Fonseca is a great coach: “I didn’t have him as a coach when I played for Shakhtar. But I was impressed by his team when I watched them playing in the Champions League.”
“His team was playing confidently against big clubs such as Manchester City and Roma. By coming here I had the opportunity to understand his football. I’m sure great results will be reached with him.”
