Midfielder of the Armenian national team and Borussia Dortmund Henrikh Mkhitaryan is placed 84th in the fresh ranking of Top 100 Players in the World 2014 released by FourFourTwo football magazine
“Perhaps unsurprisingly the Armenian Footballer of the Year for 2011, 2012 and 2013, Mkhitaryan advanced his claim for a fourth straight award with an impressive opening season at Borussia Dortmund following his £25m move last year,” the magazine writes.
“Ultimately, his debut campaign was tinged with disappointment – hence his 18-place drop this year – as Dortmund finished second to Bayern Munich in both the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal. However, the man quickly dubbed ‘Micki’ established himself as a fans’ favourite with a number of notable goals in his first season, including his first Champions League strike for the Germans in a 2-1 away win at Arsenal.”
To note, Mkhitaryan has completed 162 dribbles in the Bundesliga so far in 2014, 50 more than any other Dortmund player.
