AS Roma’s footballer Edin Dzeko believes Armenian footballer Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a great addition to the Italian Lega Serie A team.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined AS Roma in the Italian Lega Serie A on loan from Arsenal.

But he only started training at the beginning of the month.

But after scoring on his debut last weekend, teammate Edin Dzeko hopes the Armenian will stay longer at the club.

“I expect it from him. I know him as a great player, and he is a very good addition to our attacking team who wants to play football,” Dzeko told Sky Sports.

“I am one hundred percent sure he is going to be a big help for us. I was definitely happy to see this transfer happen.”

“After we played for our national teams and he scored two goals against us I told him ‘my friend, next games you have to score for Roma as well!’” he added.

“He’s a great pro. I remember him also from Borussia Dortmund times and he will be a big player for us. Hopefully, he can stay a long time here.”

“Hopefully he will [stay]. He will see that we are playing football here and immediately he scored a goal, so hopefully he can have more goals and a lot of assists for us,” Dzeko concluded.
