Mkhitaryan among players most trusted by Mourinho

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, in his third season at Roma, reunites for the second time with Jose Mourinho.

Despite rumours about the two experiencing a falling-out during their time at Manchester United, the Armenian international and the Special One are back on good terms.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mkhitaryan is one of the key figures in the locker room for Mourinho, and a player whom the Portuguese technician trusts a lot.

Earlier in preseason the two had a lengthy discussion about their shared past and decided to start all over, with the Roma attacker agreeing to continue with the capital club for at least another year.

Mourinho now considers him a key part of the team’s mechanisms. So much so that Mkhitaryan has already scored a goal against Fiorentina and finished with two assists against Trabzonspor and Salernitana.
