Germans learning to correctly pronounce Mkhitaryan’s surname

The No.10 uniform of Borussia Dortmund has become a new “headache” for the German Bundesliga.

The Germans are learning to correctly pronounce the surname of Armenian national football team midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Bild reports. 

“Borussia acquired H.M [i.e., Henrikh Mkhitaryan]. [But] how should his last name be pronounced? ‘Miktaryan,’ or ‘Mukhtaryan?’ No one knows exactly how the surname of the Armenian player is pronounced,” Bild writes.   

To note, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will wear the No.10 jersey at Borussia Dortmund. The Armenian international signed a four-year deal with the eight-time Bundesliga champions.
