Henrikh Mkhitaryan Sends Message to Manchester United Fans After Injury News

Henrikh Mkhitaryan Sends Message to Manchester United Fans After Injury News

Henrikh Mkhitaryan sent a message to the Manchester United support after news of his injury potentially ruling him out of next weekend’s Manchester derby.

The playmaker had to be substituted before half-time in Armenia’s friendly with Czech Republic on Wednesday night after a nasty collision with Marek Suchy.

United fans would have immediately feared the worst for their summer signing from Borussia Dortmund – particularly after watching his impressive cameo appearance against Hull last weekend.

That performance may have had Jose Mourinho thinking about starting the Armenian captain against Manchester City a week from today.

But the Armenian FA confirming that he will need to sit out between seven to 10 days for recovery effectively rules him out of that game.

And that will be disappointing for a lot of people at Old Trafford, including Mkhitaryan himself.

He’s since taken to Twitter to send a message to United fans after the injury news was revealed:

Whether ‘very soon’ means before the Manchester derby, we’re not too sure.

But it’s a long season and Mkhitaryan looks like he will return in plenty time to have a big impact on United going for the Premier League title in his first campaign at the club.

And they’ve got some quality players still to choose from if Mkhitaryan is unavailable – with Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford among those vying for attacking midfield places.
