Watch: Former Man Utd & Arsenal flop Mkhitaryan scores Roma stunner
Mkhitaryan spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Roma from Arsenal, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances. The Gunners then cancelled the Armenia captain’s contract, allowing Roma to sign the player on a permanent deal.
Freed from the glass fishbowl environment of the Premier League, Mkhitaryan has thrived in Serie A this term with five assists and six goals in 11 games this season – albeit none as spectacular as his strike during Roma’s win over Parma.
After being teed up 30 yards from goal, Mkhitaryan crashed the ball home; the Parma goalkeeper did attempt a dive, but he may as well not have bothered.
At 31, Mkhitaryan will be hoping the autumn of his career produces many more moments like this.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan now has 6 goals and 5 assists this season for Roma in all competitions.
Man in form 🔥
Here’s the first goal of his two from earlier today: pic.twitter.com/qgjsUoi65O
