Looks like Shakhtar needs Mkhitaryan October 19, 2011

Jonathan Wilson writes in his most recent Sports Illustrated column that Shakhtar Donetsk “look a side that needs to control possession.” The game between Ireland and Armenia showed they have one player who can do that: Henrik Mkhitaryan. I got pretty enthusiastic about the Armenian midfielder in that game. Let’s be having him.

(Strange note: there are TWO professional footballers who have existed with the name Hamlet Mkhitaryan. Both have played for Ararat Yerevan, although the younger, Iranian-based Hamlet Mkhitaryan has more Armenia caps than the older one, who is Henrik Mkhitaryan’s father.)
