Mkhitaryan wants to make Man Utd history

After being named Armenian Player of the Year for the seventh time, the midfielder hopes to savour success with his club with his fortunes there looking up of late

Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants to establish his place in Manchester United history after winning another honour from the Armenian Football Federation.

Things are looking up at Man Utd and Mourinho

The 27-year-old was named the Armenian Player of the Year for the sixth time in a row and seventh occasion overall on Wednesday, beating Maritimo's Gevorg Ghazaryan into second place.

Mkhitaryan struggled for playing time following his move from Borussia Dortmund but has shone for United in his most recent performances, scoring crucial goals in the wins over Zorya and Tottenham.

And the midfielder is determined to become a major part of United's illustrious history in the coming years by continuing to impress under Jose Mourinho.

Writing via his official Facebook page, Mkhitaryan, who is expected to be available to face Sunderland on December 26 after missing two games with an ankle injury, said: "I feel honoured to have won my 7th Armenian Player of the Year award!
