The Signal Iduna Park summer signing was thrilled with the reception on his debut, but he craves a return to form following his injury recovery
The Armenian, who cost €27.5 million from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer, came off the bench against Eintracht Braunschweig as the Schwarzgelben secured a second win out of two games in the 2013-14 Bundesliga campaign.
Although he was disappointed that he was unable to mark his competitive debut with a goal, the 24-year-old was thrilled with how supporters welcomed him at Signal Iduna Park in the 2-1 victory.
"The crowd's [reception] was perfect," Mkhitaryan told Ruhr Nachrichten. "The atmosphere here is great and I do not lack support here. I'm enjoying every day.
"I am very happy, because we still won in the end. The most important thing is the three points. I was very impressed and excited before the game as it was my debut.
"I can certainly play better and I should have grabbed a goal. I hope that I'll be in better shape quickly. The injury is certainly in the past - I am fit."
Dortmund's next game is a Bundesliga home tie with Werder Bremen on Friday, with kick-off at 20:30CET.
