Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang congratulates former Arsenal teammate Mkhitaryan on impressive Roma hat-trick

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken to social media on Sunday, to react to ex-teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s latest starring display for AS Roma.

Giallorossi march on

Armenian midfielder Mkhitaryan of course made the move to the Italian capital on a permanent basis this past summer, on the back of a fine campaign on loan at the Stadio Olimpico.

This brought to an end an altogether underwhelming stint in north London, which saw ‘Mkhi’ struggle for both form and fitness.

The early weeks of the new campaign, meanwhile, have seen the 31-year-old go on to remind fans of just how impressive a performer he can be when firing on all cylinders.

Across 10 appearances to this point, Mkhitaryan has directly contributed to 9 goals.

And his standout display of 2020/21 thus far came earlier today.

Roma made the trip to the Luigi Ferraris this afternoon, for a Serie A meeting with Genoa.

And Mkhitaryan went on to prove the undisputed star of the show, bagging all 3 of his side’s goals, as the visitors emerged with a fully deserved 3-1 win.

Highlights: Genoa 1-3 AS Roma

Auba reacts

In the aftermath of his Man of the Match display, meanwhile, Roma’s midfield star swiftly took to social media, to celebrate bagging the match ball:

And, as outlined above, one of Mkhitaryan’s former teammates has since followed suit, in revealing his delight for the Armenian.

The individual in question is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who of course lined out alongside Mkhi at not only Arsenal, but also Borussia Dortmund.

Taking to his Twitter account, the Gunners captain posted the following simple message of support:
