Cape Town - Henrikh
Mkhitaryan has told Manchester United to expect big things from him
next season as he continues to adapt to life in the Premier League.
The Armenia international is still adjusting to his new surroundings
after making the switch to United from Bundesliga giants Borussia
Dortmund during the off-season transfer window.
Mkhitaryan had a less than glamorous start to his career at Old
Trafford, being hauled off at half-time in the Manchester derby - his
first start for Jose Mourinho's side - and subsequently struggling to
break into the first team.
But the 28-year-old play-maker has bounced back to start a further 10
games in the league, while helping the Red Devils reach the Europa
League quarter-finals with three goals in six appearances.
Mkhitaryan scored an outrageous back-heel flick against Sunderland on
Boxing Day to showcase his sublime talent, but he believes there is
much more to come in the 2017/18 campaign.
When asked by United Review if he had got to grips with the
rigours of English football, Mkhitaryan responded: "No, not yet. I still
have places where I can improve and room to improve. I know myself very
well and I am sure than I can do better, and I will do better, because I
"I know very well within myself I can do more, I want to say that,
for next year, I am going to have more goals and more assists.
"Of course, you can improve in every aspect. There is not one side
that you can say I am good on it and then I don't have to work on that
"You have to work on every side to your game, in every aspect, because you just have to keep working hard to improve."
