Arsenal Star Henrikh Mkhitaryan Reveals Main Difference Between Arsene Wenger And Former Boss Jose Mourinho

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed the biggest difference between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho is their temperament.

The Armenian found himself left out in the cold at Manchester United after suffering a slight dip in form last year, and needed a January move to revive his career.

Mourinho offered him to Arsenal in return for their Chilean wonder Alexis Sanchez, who was desperate for a way out of north London.

The two managers struck a deal, and a swap took place with Sanchez signing for Manchester United and Mkhitaryan joining Arsenal.

The Armenian has settled into his new club seamlessly, with a hat-trick of assists in only his second match against Everton.

And in a recent interview with SFR Sport, the midfielder has suggested that his new boss Wenger is the sole reason for his change in fortunes.

“Mourinho required a lot from the players,” explained Mkhitaryan.

“A lot, he was very hard. Arsene Wenger is friendlier, he understands, can think about players’ situations, is calmer. That’s the difference.

“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.

“We won the Europa League final, I scored a goal. If people say that I have not had enough success it is their opinion, but I can say that I had a lot of success at the club.”
