Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has heaped praise on Mesut Ozil and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in an interview.
The Armenian international is overjoyed at linking up with his old pal, Aubameyang and said that he loves playing with the striker. “I thought it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that. I know him very well, he is one of my best friends and one of the the best team-mates I have every had. “, he said.
The pair had terrorized the Bundesliga when they used to play with each other at Dortmund. Mkhitaryan went on, “I am very happy to have him here and I think all the fans are happy to see him in an Arsenal shirt. What can I say? I love playing with him.“
While speaking about the Gunners’ star man Mesut Ozil, he did not hold back with the compliments: “Everyone knows that Mesut is one of the best players in the world,” he continued. “It is only happiness and joy to play next to him because he understands very well the game and has great vision, amazing technique and he is the best in his position.” The German has recently signed a new contract with Arsenal that will keep him at the club till 2021.
Mkhitaryan will love to play Arsenal’s new style of play and having the likes of Ozil Lacazette and Wilshere with him will definitely help him. He adds to the Gunners’ creativity and having a known face in the form of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang will make him very comfortable at his new club.
