Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said he is “very happy” at Arsenal, the Daily Star reports.
When asked to reflect on his first year at Arsenal, Mkhitaryan replied: “I would say it’s a bit too early to say something about it but I’m very pleased to be here and I’m trying my best."
Speaking in Ukraine ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash against Vorskla Poltava, Mkhitaryan said: “I’m very pleased to be here and I have a lot of good memories from time with Shakhtar and Metalurh, and also with the players I used to play with. I still remember the day when I scored two goals for Donetsk."
“As I played for Shakhtar, of course I wanted to visit Donetsk again," he added.
UEFA opted to move the game afgainst Vorskla Poltava to Kiev after Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko imposed martial law in certain regions.
“I am ready to play in Poltava, I am ready to play in Kiev.
“We had a long trip but for us it doesn’t matter about where we play.
“Of course for Poltava, it’s a big disadvantage because they wanted to play at home.”
