Manchester United Football Club made some big signings over the summer, with Jose Mourinho sanctioning some huge funds to lure players like Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the club. However, one man who is yet to find his feet is Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Many fans expected huge things from the Armenian international who is widely regarded as one of the hottest attacking players in the world right now, but he hasn’t been able to cut it in England as of yet.
Now, journalist Miguel Delaney has tweeted out that even Jose Mourinho isn’t a big believer of the 27-year-old who came over from Borussia Dortmund, and he feels that perhaps he cannot handle the style of Premier League football.
If this is true, it does beg the question as to why the manager would be willing to sanction such hefty funds to sign him, and it does make sense given his exclusion from recent squads since returning to fitness.
The cracks are certainly starting to show for Jose after being sent to the stands yesterday, and making the wrong decision to bring Juan Mata off. Now this latest issue doesn’t help matters..

Re Mkhitaryan, my understanding is Mourinho has doubts whether he can handle the style of the Premier League.
