Mkhitaryan: “My move to Roma? Everything happened quickly”.


Roma attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan appeared in a documentary produced by Russian blogger Yevgeny Savin.

The former Dortmund man discussed his move to the Giallorossi in the summer and potentially what his future could hold.

“On 1 September, just two hours after a match with Arsenal, Mino Raiola called me and told me I needed to take the first flight to Rome,” he said.

“Everything happened so quickly, but I promised myself that things would change this season. When you’re 30 years-old, you have no time to waste and you need to keep having fun”.

“At the beginning of the season, our objective was to finish in the top four, go to the Coppa Italia final, and go as far as we can in Europe”.

He continued, “The pressure here isn’t an issue for me, especially at my age: I’ve played at Manchester United and Arsenal”.

“People here live and breathe football, it’s great. I want to keep playing at this level as long as possible, ideally until I’m 37 years-old”.
