Hen­rikh: I can still im­prove at United

Glossop Advertiser - - Motors -

HEN­RIKH Mkhi­taryan has vowed to do even bet­ter next sea­son af­ter an en­cour­ag­ing first year with United.

The Ar­me­nian is en­joy­ing a pro­lific tour of the States and was named man of the match in the win over City.

Mour­inho bought Mkhi­taryan to strengthen United’s right flank but the 28-year-old has played on the op­po­site side, as well as be­ing play­maker and even at full-back on oc­ca­sion.

“Not yet,” Mkhi­taryan replied when asked if Mour­inho had spec­i­fied a cer­tain role for him. “Be­cause I am ready to play wher­ever he wants me to play. I don’t have a pref­er­ence in a po­si­tion. I will try my best if I’m in the mid­dle, on the wing, on the side or up front. It doesn’t mat­ter.

“I am ex­pect­ing some­thing good be­cause I know you can al­ways do bet­ter and bet­ter, there is no limit. Last year, with my dif­fi­cul­ties, they helped me a lot. I could stay more strong in my mind. I never said that I had hard times here.

“I think I have done ev­ery­thing to work hard, to show ev­ery­one I can play and that I can do my best for the team.”

Mkhi­taryan made just one start dur­ing the open­ing three-and-ahalf months of last sea­son and is adamant the test­ing pe­riod has im­proved him.

“I think there is al­ways a place to im­prove,” he said.

“It doesn’t mat­ter how you did last year. It has been a good year for us, for me as well, be­cause we won three ti­tles.

“But I know for this up­com­ing sea­son I can do bet­ter and bet­ter. I’m try­ing, I’m work­ing hard on my­self and I know that I will achieve more.

“In gen­eral I can im­prove.”
