‘Friend’s’ arrival has Mkhitaryan dreaming big

London: Henrikh Mkhitaryan is living a dream at Arsenal after being reunited with close friend and “the best team-mate” he’s shared a dressing room with in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Mkhitaryan bagged three assists on his home debut -- including the pass to tee up Aubameyang for his first Arsenal goal -- as the Gunners thrashed Everton 5-1 last weekend to breath a fresh air of optimism into an often frustrated Emirates crowd.

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan formed a lethal partnership in three years together at Borussia Dortmund before the Armenian left for an unhappy 18-month spell at Manchester United.

However, the arrival of another former Dortmund connection in Arsenal’s new head of recruitment Sven Mislintat helped bring the pair together again as Alexis Sanchez’s move to United saw Mkhitaryan head in the other direction, whilst Arsenal splashed a club record £56 million ($78 million) on Aubameyang on the final day of the January transfer window.

“I think it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that,” said Mkhitaryan.

“I have known him very well, he is one of my best friends and the best team-mate I have ever had.

“What can I say? I love playing with him. I can understand him from one step and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more.”
