Henrikh Mkhitaryan voted as Player of the Week

Yet again users of the official website of Bundesliga have voted Henrikh Mkhitaryan as Player of the Week.

The Armenian playmaker’s outstanding performance in BVB’s 3-0 win over FC Nürnberg, which included both a goal and an assist, earned the 25-year-old a whopping 67 per cent of the vote.

“He’s really starting to gather some momentum. The Armenian was on form once again in Dortmund’s 3-0 win over FC Nürnberg, scoring a goal and also grabbing an assist,” according to the website.

Mkhitaryan was all smiles after his persistence and belief paid off against a defensive Nürnberg side. “I always believed I would get my goal,” said the 25-year-old. “In the end, it worked out and I was even able to set one up, so I’m delighted with that.”

It was goal number six and assist number eight of the season for the Armenian, who has taken the Bundesliga by storm and proven he has what it takes to fill the boots of Mario Götze, who joined FC Bayern München in the summer. Mkhitaryan insisted he would not be getting carried away, however. “It’s still going to be a difficult path ahead,” he said.

Mkhitaryan provided the assist for Robert Lewandowski’s 64th-minute goal at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday. The Poland international came second in the vote with 14 per cent, three ahead of FC Bayern München’s Arjen Robben, who received eleven per cent of the vote following his hat-trick against FC Schalke 04.
