Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan talked about Arsenal new coach Unai Emery, Arsene Wenger and team’s results with VivaroNews Sport.
“I still haven’t opportunity to meet him. We didn’t have time to talk with each other. I hope he will bring new tactical ideas and spirit to Arsenal, and I hope he will succeed”
“Not only players, but staff overall were sad. It’s not that easy to handle with the exit of a man, who was managing the team for 22 years. You can’t imagine how everyone were amazed of the atmosphere he had created. If he decided to stay for 10 more years, co one would have been against”
On team’s results
“Our priority was qualification for Champions League, but unfortunately we didn’t manage that. We wanted to do it and we fought for it, but everything can happen in football. So we should focus on next season and return to Champions League in 2 years.”
On talks with teammates about Emery
“I haven’t talked to my teammates about him (Emery). I would like to meet him. Everyone in the club is a professional himself. Everyone knows what he should do and what he is expected to do”
