Football agent Rafaela Pimenta reveals the secret behind the continuous success of Inter Milan veteran Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Armenian joined the Nerazzurri as a free agent in the summer of 2022 after seeing out his contract with AS Roma.

While a section of fans and pundits questioned the deal citing the player’s advanced age, the midfielder has been proving his doubters wrong.

The 35-year-old instantly established himself as a favorite in Simone Inzaghi’s court.

The Inter manager rarely drops the veteran from his starting lineup, and his agent explains the factors behind his prolonged youth.

Pimenta describes Mkhitaryan as an exemplary professional. She notes how the Armenian is always attentive to his diet, even on his days off.

“Henrikh is a leader, an intelligent one. He does everything in the right measure,” said the Brazilian lawyer in her interview with Cronache di Spogliatoio via FcInterNews,

“He’s a perfect professional who’s still improving with age.

Rafaela Pimenta Underlines The Idealistc Lifestyle Of Inter Milan Veteran Henrikh Mkhitaryan

“He does it all with a sense of idealism: the way he eats, the way lives…

“The other day he arrives at Cipriani, a restaurant in Milan, and only orders a piece of mozzarella.

“So we all look at him saying: ‘But why? They have much more exciting dishes.’

“Then he explains that they asked him to consume more lactose at the club.

“So even on his day off with his family and sisters, he maintains his diet. He has infinite discipline and does it willingly.

“He doesn’t miss delicious food because he knows that his diet helps him extend his career. It’s something that he has to do.

“He’s rich, he’s famous, he’s a great player, but he does it anyway.”

Mkhitaryan has recently extended his contract until the summer of 2026.

This season, the experienced midfielder has thus far scored two goals (both coming in the Derby della Madonnina) and provided his teammates with nine assists across all competitions.
