Former Manchester United and Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has opened up on his Premier League experience during a press conference. The former Borussia Dortmund winger joined AS Roma in the summer, and admits that he stopped having any love for the sport in the Premier League.

Mkhitaryan joined Manchester United for £30 million in 2016, after putting up eye-catching performances in Borussia Dortmund. However, the Armenian International failed to adapt to the fast and furious nature of the Premier League and was soon sold to Arsenal. His troubles continued, and he finally secured a way into the Serie A with AS Roma this year.

In an interview Henrikh Mkhitaryan reveals that he had problems in England, further adding that moving to Italy was not a step backwards for him.

“Now I am in Rome and I focus on them. This is not a step backwards as 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. In England, I no longer felt this pleasure. The messages after the two national matches made me happy, but now I have to concentrate on Rome," revealed the Armenian reports the BBC.

“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 football 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."
