Manchester United manager José Mourinho explained why Armenia national squad captain and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan left the Red Devils in January and joined Liverpool.
As per the Portuguese football specialist, it is impossible to keep players who do not have a place in the starting XI, and the players’ reaction to that reality depends on their makeup, reported the BBC.
Mourinho said Mkhitaryan realized that he was not ready for that reality physically, psychologically, and at the competition level.
He added that it was difficult for the Armenia international to adapt to such intensity of the matches.
