I wouldn’t have subbed Mkhitaryan off – ex-USSR footballer

Henrikh had an excellent opportunity to score, stated former USSR international Yuri Savichev, who now coaches Germania Schnelsen (Germany). The ex-footballer commented on Armenian national squad and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance during his club’s German Bundesliga game against FC Bayern Munich.

 “Mkhitaryan should have headed the ball to any corner [of the Bayern net] from the very beginning. But Henrikh began to lower the ball and, subsequently, the opportunity was lost. They substituted him after that. [But] I would have kept him on the pitch,” Sport Express quotes Savichev as saying.  

To note, Dortmund lost to Bayern at home, and by a score of 3-0, and the 24-year-old Armenian international was subbed off in the 71st minute.
