Germans Learning To Correctly Pronounce Mkhitaryan’s Surname


July 10, 2013

The No.10 uniform of Borussia Dortmund has become a new “headache”
for the German Bundesliga.

The Germans are learning to correctly pronounce the surname of Armenian
national football team midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Bild reports.

“Borussia acquired H.M [i.e., Henrikh Mkhitaryan]. [But] how should
his last name be pronounced? ‘Miktaryan,’ or ‘Mukhtaryan?’ No one
knows exactly how the surname of the Armenian player is pronounced,”
Bild writes.

To note, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will wear the No.10 jersey at Borussia
Dortmund. The Armenian international signed a four-year deal with
the eight-time Bundesliga champions.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
