Why Jose Mourinho Needs To Find A Place For Henrikh Mkhitaryan In His Manchester United Side As Soon As Possible?

The Armenian star signed for Premier League giants Manchester United from former club Borussia Dortmund and looked an edge above during his debut against Wigan Athletic and gave the hints to the Old Trafford faithfuls for what they could expect from the Bundesliga Player’s player of the season. Mkhitaryan started his career in his native country with Pyunik, before leaving them back in 2009 and spending four years in Ukraine with Metalurh Donetsk and later Shakhtar Donetsk.

A club-record switch to Borussia Dortmund after his highly impressive displays at Shakhtar, then occurred in 2013, and he went on to score 41 times in 140 games in all competitions for Bourssia Dortmund during three years in Germany, although he struggled in his first year at Dortmund under Klopp.

However, his only piece of silverware in that time came with the German Super Cup in 2014 as Bayern Munich dominated the Bundesliga.

Being a playmaker his job is much more than goals, he had the most no. of assists in Europe’s Top 5 League’s last season. His vision and speed are one of the main attributes of his game.

While naturally more of a No 10, the Armenian also has the speed and skill to play out wide – once saying he would have been a sprinter were he not a footballer  – and the calmness and composure to play deeper as a central midfielder.

But, in the last 2 games he has seen Lingard and Mata being played ahead of him, although both had good games and scored goals. He was given 20 odd minutes to feature in both the games by Mourinho, who probably is trying to mould him into Premier league style of play.

Rooney as no. 10 has looked way off the mark and maybe it’s about time Mourinho either needs to tweak in the formation to settle in Mkhitaryan or he needs to replace Manchester United skipper with Mkhitaryan.
Rooney-Zlatan-Mata trio also slows down the game too much for United.
Also, one of Manchester United’s problems last season (among a host of others) was their system often looking too rigid during games, and a player like Mkhitaryan could certainly provide a solution to that and Mkhitaryan provides them both the creativity and speed to their game. Also he can add goals from their midfield, something which they highly lacked in last few seasons.

Mourinho might have a tough decision to make in upcoming games if Rooney fails to deliver, or he’ll have to drop Mata out of the squad in order to accommodate Mkhitaryan.
Whatever might have to be done, one thing is sure that Manchester United have a arguably a good problem at hand with such good players available and willing to fight for their spots in the team.
