Armeniana midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan says Jurgen Klopp played a big role in his decision to move to Borussia Dortmund.
Mkhitaryan joined BVB from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth €27.5 million last week. The player, who signed a four-year contract, says the charismatic Klopp was pivotal in his decision to join the Bundesliga giants.
“Klopp played a large role in my decision to come here. He is a great coach. And I know that the team is really good and operates professionally,” he told Kicker.
“To win something with your team is a great joy this is why you play the game,” he added. “If this is not your drive, it is better to do something else.
“To win titles in football you have to give it everything that`s what my experience has taught me.”
He added: “I listen attentively to what Jurgen Klopp has to say. But still, there have only been a couple of training sessions and two games, we`re talking about now. That should not be forgotten.”
Mkhitaryan grabbed a goal and an three assists in Dortmund`s friendly wins over Basel and Bursaspor.
