Europa League: Mkhitaryan, Man United fly to Istanbul

Armenia national football team captain and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan flew to Istanbul, as part of the Manchester United (a.k.a. Red Devils) squad.

In this Turkish city, the Red Devils will face Fenerbahçe S.K. in their Europa League group stage clash, on Thursday.

A total of 21 Man United players left for Istanbul.

As reported earlier, this is the first time that Mkhitaryan will be featuring for the English club, ever since recovering from his injury.

The 27-year-old Armenia international has been omitted from the recent games of the Red Devils, albeit he has recovered from his injury a long time ago and is training without restrictions.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been out of action since September 10, when his thigh injury recurred during Manchester United’s English Premier League derby against Manchester City.
