Henrikh Mkhitaryan is not ready to give up his Manchester United dream and says he’ll continue to fight despite having limited playing time under Mourinho.
The Armenia international has started only one match in the Premier League, before he was substituted at halftime.
Mkhitaryan was used as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 Europa League defeat to Fenerbahce but was left out of the squad altogether for the victory over Swansea on Sunday.
Speculation has persisted that the 27-year-old could be allowed to leave Old Trafford as early as January, but Mkhitaryan is adamant that he does not want to leave.
“It’s true that I’ve not had much time on the pitch so far. But I will not give up,” he was quoted as saying by Sport Bild after his appointment as a UNICEF ambassador.
“I worked hard in my career and it was a long journey to play for Manchester United. I will continue to fight to make my dream come true at United.
“I will not give up and I’ll find the strength to achieve that goal.”
