When asked by Mediamax Sport about the game, Mkhitaryan has noted he already faced CSKA this season as a Manchester United player.
“Although we won 1-4 in the first leg, it was not easy. This time I will play against CSKA as an Arsenal player. It will be a different game and, you could say, a different opponent. Judging by their latest game, they have progressed a lot,” noted the midfielder.
He has remarked again he was a fan of the London club for many years, although he didn’t mention it often:
“My dream has come true, now I play for Arsenal. I wish all Armenian kids to believe in themselves and know that with hard work, any dream can come true.”
