The Armenia international left Old Trafford in January and has reiterated that a switch was driven by a desire to find attacking football

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has trolled Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho again, reiterating that his move to Arsenal was driven by a desire to play “offensive” football.

The Armenian midfielder brought a frustrating spell at Old Trafford to a close during the January transfer window when he completed a switch to Emirates Stadium.

Having slipped in and out of the United side under Mourinho, Mkhitaryan linked up with a Premier League rival as part of a deal which saw Alexis Sanchez go in the opposite direction.

The 29-year-old is loving life under Arsene Wenger in north London, with regular game time and a prominent role in an attack-minded team allowing him to play to his strengths.

Mkhitaryan told FourFourTwo on his winter trade: “When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, ‘Yes, I want to do that’, I didn’t think twice. It’s important for me to play in an offensive team.
