Arsenal manager Wenger praises Mkhitaryan commitment: Brilliant with extra training

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is delighted with the impact at training made by recent signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

At training, usually a member of the Arsenal coaching staff would stay late to provide service for the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

But recently Mkhitaryan has decided to take on that role.

It was claimed Mkhitaryan was helped the Gunners stickers with extra practice. And Wenger confirmed these reports during his press conference ahead of the north London derby on Saturday.

"He has a very professional attitude and overall I think that is what you want from every player," said Wenger.

“I am not surprised about that because I find that absolutely normal."
