The best around
Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been speaking about who he thinks the best number 10 in the world is, and it’s someone he has played with.
The Armenian joined the Gunners in the January transfer window, going in the opposite direction to Alexis Sanchez who joined Manchester United.
He’s certainly started life at the Emirates well and is starting to capture the hearts of Arsenal fans.
Now, he will certainly have made them fall head over heels for him after claiming that Mesut Ozil is the best no.10 in world football.
The German is still one of the best playmakers in the Premier League and will continue to be for a while longer at Arsenal.
Though, Henrikh has made sure everyone knows what he thinks of Ozil.
“Everyone knows that Mesut is one of the best players in the world,” Mkhitaryan said.
“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.”
Not only has the player been speaking about Ozil, he’s also been speaking about his reunion with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon international joined Arsenal in January and linked up with Mkhitaryan for the first time since their time at Borussia Dortmund.
Now, he’s defended the player’s slightly slow start with much more to come between them.
“Two days wasn’t enough to remember all the stuff that we did together but in the game, it worked very well,” he explained.
“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 best team-mates I have ever had.
“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.”
