The Armenian spent just 18 months with the Manchester club but struggled to really recreate the form that got him the move from Borussia Dortmund in the first place.
Jose Mourinho never gave the player a consistent run of chances which ultimately led to him needing to move on in the window.
The new Arsenal midfielder made a fabulous start to his career claiming three assists on his debut as the Gunners claimed a massive 5-1 win against Everton at the Emirates stadium.
The deal looks like being a good one for the Gunners as the player suits there style and this was something which Rooney highlighted when he was on Sky Sports last night saying.
I think he is (in a place where he can thrive),
I’ve seen it last season in training a lot, he’s a very talented player.
I think at he didn’t get the freedom he really wanted to go and perform which he had at (Borussia) Dortmund.
He continued and went on to add.
It was a different style of play to what Dortmund played.
At Arsenal I think he will have players around him running off the ball, taking the ball, and he will create goals and he will score goals.
So I really do think he will kick on.
