Mats Hummels has backed Henrikh Mkhitaryan to come good for Manchester United.
The Armenian ace has struggled since his £26million switch to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
Mkhitaryan has been restricted to just two Premier League starts for the Red Devils so far this season.
However, his former Dortmund teammate Hummels insists the 27-year-old will shine for Jose Mourinho’s men if he’s given the chance.
“If you let him play, you will see how good he is. I am 100 per cent sure of this. He is one of the best I have played with,” he told the Daily Mail.
“But if you can’t play, you can’t shine. It’s easy! It’s really easy! I saw part of the game against Feyenoord.
“I saw part of the game against West Ham. There he was – always good, as he is always when he is on the pitch. He played at that level (raises his hands) all of last year.”
