Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan thank Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp


Henrikh Mkhitaryan has thanked Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for helping him through the testing early days of his Manchester United career.

The 28-year-old had a difficult start to life at Old Trafford, spending 10 weeks on the sidelines following his summer arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

The Armenian was substituted at half-time in United's home league defeat to City on September 10 and did not play in the league again until November 27.
He has since become one of manager Jose Mourinho's go-to players - and has credited former boss Klopp for helping him through his dark days with advice he gave him during their two seasons together in Germany.
Mkhitaryan told the BBC: "I am thankful to Klopp. He worked on my personality and the psychological part. At Dortmund, I was very stressed after a few games when we were playing really bad.
"Klopp showed me the way. He supported me and told me I had to keep my head up because good things were coming. He helped me to become a player."
Since his exile Mkhitaryan has become a key player for Mourinho and was man of the match in Sunday's 3-0 win over Leicester City.
