Watch: "The Problem Was Me"- Mkhitaryan Gives Bullshit-Free View On His Troubles

We've heard a lot from Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan over the last two weeks since he has emerged from the cold at Old Trafford, and all of it has been rather impressive.

We're used to seeing footballers "focus on the next game" or whathaveyou when trying to avoid questions on troubling stages of their career, but the Armenian is clearly someone who has no problem at all in admitting he has made mistakes.

In the case of his start to the season, where it looked from the outside as though he would struggle to make any impact at his new club, he blames nobody other than himself for preconceived ideas that he had after signing for Man Utd.


In a new interview with Sky Sports, he admits that he thought he was signed to be a starting player, but soon realised there would be fierce competition for places, and acknowledges that a bad performance against Man City was a sign that he was not up to speed.

He's an interesting character, Mkhitaryan. Clearly a very intelligent man, after having been kept in the dark as to what was going on with his career between September and December, suddenly he has been freed to clue us all in, and he's doing a very good job of it.

His piece in The Player's Tribune was outstanding, and the above interview is another example of him having his head screwed on. His performances have certainly picked up, and Man Utd fans are starting to see the player they thought they had signed back in the summer.
