New boy hails Wenger’s style

Arsenal

New signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan says he is benefitting from Arsene Wenger’s style of management at Arsenal.

The Armenia international never quite got his game going under Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho but has made a good start to life at Arsenal and says he prefers Wenger’s more compassionate style of management.

“Mourinho required a lot from the players,” Mkhitaryan told SFR Sport.

“A lot, he was very hard.

“Arsene Wenger is friendlier, he understands, can think about players’ situations, is calmer. That’s the difference.”

Despite not hitting the heights on a regular basis at Old Trafford the 29-year-old still feels his time at Old Trafford should be viewed as a success.

“I think I left an impression in Manchester, although I had difficulties,” he added.

“We won three trophies in a year and a half, it’s not every club that does that.”
