Mkhitaryan admits he struggled to adapt to life at Arsenal

Roma new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed that he was no longer happy at Arsenal before his loan move to the Serie A.

Mkhitaryan joined Roma on a season-long loan from the English Premier League club.

He has been officially unveiled and now wants to focus on his new deal.

“Now I am in Rome and I focus on them.

“This is not a step backwards as a great football is played here. I wanted to change scenery and for me it is an opportunity to be seized.

“I have to enjoy playing football, no matter the place.

"I no longer felt happy. Maybe I was not fitting so well in English football.

“The messages after the two national matches made me happy, but now I have to concentrate on Rome.

“I will never give up and I will fight to the end. I'm not afraid of pressure, I'm used to it having already played with great teams.

“I know that the slightest mistake is criticised while a good performance is exalted. If you agree to play soccer you must be ready to face criticism.

“Serie A is a great opportunity, I accepted immediately with enthusiasm. We didn't even talk about money.”
