[Henrikh Mkhitaryan speaks about Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s influence on his career, when they were at Borussia Dortmund together] I am thankful to Klopp. He worked on my personality and the psychological part. At Dortmund, I was very stressed after a few games when we were playing really bad. Klopp showed me the way. He supported me and told me I had to keep my head up because good things were coming. He helped me to become a player

[Henrikh Mkhitaryan tells team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic about his popularity] Everyone knows Ibrahimovic calls himself the God. But when we landed in Rostov I told him: ‘You see who the real God is’.

[Mkhitaryan makes Arsenal future admission as he approaches the end of Roma loan] Since the first day I arrived here in Rome, I feel very good in the club, in the city, and of course it would be nice to stay here. The main target will be the Champions League, other wins and titles. People underestimate Serie A, the Italian league, but it’s more than interesting to play here. The league is getting better and better, and last year’s transfers speak for themselves

I do not have a lot of time left until the end of my football career, but I’m pretty sure that I’m doing my best to achieve more, because at the end of your football career everyone will remember what you have done for the club, what titles you have won. It’s very important to leave a positive note by winning a trophy or doing something good for the club. I always had a dream to play in the best European leagues and the best European clubs. And I’ve fulfilled my dream. I’m working hard and mixing my talent with hard work. It’s not always easy, but sometimes you must make a sacrifice

[Arsenal loanee Mkhitaryan hoping for permanent Stadio Olimpico switch] Of course I would like to be at Roma next season, not only next season [but] for another few years. But I still have a contract with Arsenal and it’s not up to me. It’s up to Arsenal and Roma if they will agree on terms of the transfer fee. So my thinking is to train hard, to play hard, to look forward to what’s going to happen. Of course, if I’m not going to stay at Roma I have to go back to Arsenal. I’m not complaining, football life changes so quickly so you have to be ready to play wherever you are. If not in Rome, I’m going to go back and play for Arsenal, if not, I’m going to stay here and play for Rome

[Henrikh Mkhitaryan extends Roma loan deal from Arsenal] I’m very pleased. I’m happy to extend my stay here, because I still have things that I haven’t achieved yet that I want to achieve. I’m looking forward to it
