Henrikh Mkhitaryan playing for Borussia Dortmund
DORTMUND, Germany—The sparkling form of Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan didn’t go unnoticed by the bundesliga.com users on a dramatic final day in Germany’s top flight last weekend.
The Armenian Footballer of the Year capped an engrossing individual performance with a delightful goal – a wonderfully executed lob over Hoffenheim goalkeeper Koen Casteels – in an equally captivating 3-2 win over TSG 1899 Hoffenheim that clinched BVB’s place in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League.
Mkhitaryan took 64 percent of the weekly poll, beating Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger into second place (with 23 percent).
