Lucescu: Mkhitaryan played out of position at Arsenal and Man Utd

Former Turkey coach Mircea Lucescu is happy seeing Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Roma.

The former Manchester United midfielder has moved to Roma on-loan from Arsenal.

Lucescu worked with Mkhitaryan at Shakhtar and told TMW: "He is one of the players I love the most.

"Very clever, he adapts to all game systems, he has exceptional running ability and endurance.

"I had him play behind the striker and he was very strong. In England he was used in positions that were not his own. In a short time he will be good in Rome for his tactical ability."
