ROME – In Armenia, the Mkhitaryan case has broken out. The Roma player is the star of the Armenian national team but after the latest disappointing results, many at home have also questioned his role. Everything stems from a post published on Facebook by the consultant of Prime Minister Mesrop Arakelyan, who had spoken of the need for a change in the national team, after the heavy 9-1 suffered by Italy, including the captain.
The furious response of Mkhitaryan's mother, who has also been part of the Armenian Federation in the recent past, is ready. His statements are reported in the Gazzetta dello Sport: “If the Federation is really the Federation, it should be ashamed of this person. If they don't have to call Micki for the national team, it's something that will only harm them. "
To put peace, the new president of the Armenian Federation Melikbekyan has thought about it. His statements are reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport: “I exclude any problem with Mkhitaryan. He is the pride of Armenian football and a legendary footballer. It does not play for the president of the Armenian Football Federation, it plays for the Armenian people and its flag ”.
The Roma footballer did not participate in this debate because he is spending a few days on vacation in Dubai in the company of his family. Vacation up to a certain point because he is training hard in the gym with his teammates Dzeko, Perotti and Juan Jesus, also on vacation in Dubai (source La Gazzetta dello Sport).
