Arsenal midfielder Mkhitaryan: Nothing to prove to Man Utd. I can do better here

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan insists he has nothing to prove to Manchester United fans.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted his concern Mkhitaryan may have been left scarred by his treatment under Jose Mourinho; having started 14 of United first 18 games in all competitions, that figure dropped to just two of the final 15, compounding Mourinho's public criticism of the playmaker.

But Mkhitaryan said: “I don't want to find excuses.

“I don't want to blame anyone but I am happy that this [half of the] season passed already. I am starting a new chapter in my life, in my football career and I am very happy to be here.

“I will be pleased to achieve more than I have done in Manchester, of course. I don't have anything to prove to anyone. I just have to enjoy myself, do my best and at the end I will see where I can reach."
