‘League 2 would be harder to win’ – Arsenal fans aren’t impressed with award announcement

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are not impressed with an award picked up by the 29-year-old midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The creative midfielder has picked up his eighth Armenian footballer of the year award, with this one being seventh in a row. Arsenal took to Twitter to congratulate him as they tweeted a link to the Arsenal website with more details of his success.

The Arsenal fans propping our bar up saw Mkhitaryan come to the Emirates in January following a straight swap for Chilean, Alexis Sanchez. The midfielder has been a key figure in Arsene Wenger’s side since leaving Old Trafford for The Emirates as he’s scored two goals and set up six more in his ten appearances for the Gunners. It’s no surprise to see Mkhitaryan going home with the Armenian footballer of the year award as he’s also the nations top goalscorer with 25 goals in 70 appearances for his country.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United creator has come to Arsenal during a tough period for the club. The club’s fans are enduring their worst season in Premier League history as they sit 6th in the table and 13 points off of 4th placed rivals Tottenham. The only way Wenger can hope to turn the club’s season around is to win the Europa League. The Gunners beat AC Milan 5-1 on aggregate in the round-of-sixteen of the competition and they now face a quarter-final fixture against CSKA Moscow. Winning the Europa League would be a big success for Mkhitaryan and co as they target a return to the Champions League next season.

Here’s what our resident Arsenal fans make of Mkhitaryan’s award:
