Mourinho only cares about the three points - Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan reveals he ‘had other offers’ when he decided to extend his stay with AS Roma and concludes ‘Jose Mourinho doesn’t care if we play good or bad football, but to get the three points.’

The Armenia international would’ve been a free agent this summer, but signed a new deal to June 2022.

“I stayed because I believed in the project of this club, I admired it from the first day,” Mkhitaryan told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am glad to be here, I like the team, fans and the city. I feel certain that we can win something with the Giallorossi. I had offers from Italy and abroad, but I chose to remain and I’m happy with that decision.”

The midfielder was asked who had requested his services, but refused to comment.

While they were at Manchester United, he famously fought with the Portuguese tactician, but have now put those concerns behind them.

He further says, “Mourinho is an ambitious person, he always wants to win. He doesn’t care if we play good or bad football, it’s all about the three points.

“Everyone knows he has won almost everything there is to win. I don’t want to talk about the past, we discussed it together and started from scratch on a different level. I know what he asks of his players and I am ready to give my all.”

When asked to name the three strongest teammates of his career, the midfielder mentioned Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba
