Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic believes that Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s versatility makes him the player that the Bianconeri will have to watch out for the most in tomorrow’s Serie A clash in Friuli.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the German named Mkhitaryan as the Nerazzurri’s danger man in tomorrow’s match, and also stated that he plans to ask for the former Roma, Borussia Dortmund, and Arsenal midfielder’s shirt after the match.
Mkhitaryan only arrived at Inter in the summer, but already he has been leaving his mark in midfield with a string of early performances which have largely showed why the club bought him.
The 33-year-old has energy and workrate coupled with a good reading of the game and efficient technique and passing range which have allowed him to operate one step ahead of most of the players around him in the midfield battle, and in Samardzic’s eyes he could be the man to unlock tomorrow’s match.
“He’s their number one danger man,” the 20-year-old said of Mkhitaryan. “He has everything, can play with his left or right foot. After the match I’ll ask for his shirt.”
