Armenian international playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed why he left Arsenal for Italian Serie A giants AS Roma before the end of the European transfer market.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined AS Roma on loan for the rest of the season.
In an exclusive interview with popular Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Henrikh Mkhitaryan revealed that he stopped enjoying his football at Arsenal under club manager Unai Emery and that played a key role in his exit.
AS Roma paid €3m for his loan fee from Arsenal though it must be pointed out that there’s no permanent transfer clause in his loan contract.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan signed for AS Roma shortly after playing for the Gunners in the North London Derby earlier this month.
He came on as a second half substitute as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur share a four-goal thriller in the Premier League.
The Gunners dropped points at home for the first time this season via the 2-2 draw with their North London rivals.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan still has two years left on his contract at Arsenal though the first of those two years will be spent at AS Roma.
He became an Arsenal player in January 2018 as part of the swap deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Premier League rivals Manchester United.
