Much like the Armenian international manager claimed that Mkhitaryan would enjoy much more freedom to show his attacking abilities in Arsenal, The Manchester united legend and former striker Wayne Rooney has moved to praise his move to Arsenal.

 Man united legend Wayne Rooney has tipped Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s move to Arsenal, tipping the talented forward to thrive at his new club.

The former England international striker played alongside the Armenian all-time international goalscorer at Manchester United last season, and both were limited in match-minutes, but Rooney saw plenty of the new Arsenal signings talent on the training pitch.

“I think he is [at a club where he can thrive],” Rooney said of Mkhitaryan.

“I’ve seen it last season in training a lot, he’s a very talented player. I think at Manchester United he didn’t get the freedom he really wanted to go and perform which he had at Dortmund.

“It was a different style of play to what Dortmund played. At Arsenal I think he will have players around him running off the ball, taking the ball, and he will create goals and he will score goals.

“So I really do think he will kick on.”

Arsenal rivals would have gotten a message as Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan have already started to show their creative ways .

Tottenham will definitely be looking at the new arsenal and signings, and a win for arsenal will see them move to a point within their rivals.
