Henrikh Mkhitaryan has already begun to show what all the fuss was about for his new club, Borussia Dortmund, Soccer-Laduma writes.
The versatile Armenian attacking midfielder only joined the Bundesliga side earlier this week, but they have already put him through his paces in a pre-season friendly.
The €27 million 24-year-old played 45 minutes for Dortmund in their 3-1 over FC Basel on Wednesday night.
In his cameo Mkhitaryan scored one goal and set up another, leaving his new club certain that they made the right decision in breaking the bank to sign him.
According to Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc, Mkhitaryan enjoyed “a great debut.”
“He instantly took on our game,” Zorc told Kicker.
Dortmund goalkeeper, Roman Weidenfeller, was also impressed by what he saw from the highly-rated and prolific Armenian.
“We can be really delighted about Miki,” Weidenfeller told Ruhr Nachrichten.
“I think we have signed a huge talent that will help us a lot this season.”
