The former Dortmund man has missed several matches through injury and other fitness concerns, but despite now being fully fit, he continues to get overlooked by manager Jose Mourinho who recently stated that he thought Mkhitaryan couldn't handle the pressure of a match against title rivals Arsenal.


But the playmaker appears to have hit back at his managerafter liking this tweet posted by Squawka football.

The tweet shows an impressive number of statistics on Mkhitaryan this time last year, when he was playing in the Bundesliga for Dortmund.


Considering how things have gone so wrong, you wouldn't blame the Armenian for reminiscing about old times and reminding everyone that he's not that bad after all.


Mkhitaryan can at leastlook forward to featuring in United's Europa League match against Feyenoord on Thursday evening. The Red Devils will besearching for an important win over their Group A rivals, as the group stage looks set for a thrilling climax.
