He noted that the change of the coach contributed to his decision to move to Roma.
“This isn’t about my failure to adapt to English football. I moved to Arsenal upon Arsène Wenger’s wish, and then Emery came. I think something hindered the process; our playing philosophies didn’t coincide. Anything can happen in football,” Mkhitaryan told journalists.
He said that the most important thing is the fact that he achieved his dream of playing in England. “Now I am focused on Roma’s games”.
The midfielder noted that he had certain offers from other teams as well, but the Italians’ offer was more concrete: “The club was more willing to take me into their team, and I am happy to be part of Roma”.
