Mkhitaryan criticizes teammates for lack of enthusiasm

Armenia and FC Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has criticized some of his teammates over lacking enthusiasm on the pitch after Armenia suffered a painful defeat in a home match against the Czech team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

“We have lost because some of my teammates did not play with their heart and soul,” said the 24-year-old Armenian star, according to Sport-Express.

“When playing for the national team one has to give his best rather than make a show,” added Mkhitaryan.

Meanwhile, head choach Vardan Minasyan said “we are not tasked to qualify for the World Cup.” “The goal is to improve the quality of the game,” he added.
