Henrikh Mkhitaryan supporters have bombarded Jose Mourinho’s Instagram page with comments demanding the Manchester United playmaker return to the squad, Manchester Evening News reports.
Mkhitaryan did not participate in five of the last six matches. Mkhitaryan did travel to Basel last month but was the only outfield player to be omitted from the matchday 18.
In the last two days, Mourinho’s most recent Instagram upload celebrating his daughter’s birthday – which was on November 4 – has been swamped with comments imploring him to restore Mkhitaryan to the United fold.
The majority of the Instagram users appear to be Armenian and the comments range from multiple emojis of the country’s flag to tearful emojis. Others have informed Mourinho ‘Micki is the best’, ‘we really need Mkhitaryan’, ‘Bring back Mkhitaryan’ and ‘Don’t forget Mkhitaryan’s investment in your club Jose’. Others also posted Mkhitaryan’s chant lyrics.
