Mkhitaryan admits Emery did not want him but would a new manager?
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been shipped out on loan this summer after the attacker failed to impress Unai Emery.
He has, however, found some form and he is enjoying his football again. That said, the Armenian remains one of the few Arsenal players that divides opinion.
Unai Emery seems to have moved on from him and would rather have a new signing than bring back the former Manchester United man.
When asked about his future recently, Mkhitaryan admitted that he was just on loan at AS Roma and a return to Arsenal is still very much a possibility.
He also insisted that he wasn’t a happy man when he was playing for Arsenal and needed the loan to become happy about the game again.
“Roma is fantastic, both the city and club. The impact was great also with the people. I was not happy at Arsenal, and when my agent spoke to me about this opportunity, I quickly said yes.”
“Unfortunately, I am hurt with an injury. I am concentrated on recovering the fastest way possible and in the meantime I am learning Italian. I know my qualities and I can still give a lot. Arsenal and Emery didn’t believe in my anymore and now I’m happy to be at Roma”

Arsenal is currently struggling for both goals and wins and it is a little obvious to see why as they have been creating very few chances.
Unai Emery is set to be fired if there is no change in results and the Spanish manager may just be outlasted by Mkhitaryan.
Personally, I do not see a return for him but who knows what will happen if a new man is put in place.
