    Mkhitaryan completes move to Inter after ´perfect end´ to Roma career

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan says winning the Europa Conference League was the “perfect end” to his Roma career after finalising a move to Serie A rivals Inter.

    The ex-Armenia international spent three years at Stadio Olimpico, the first of those on loan, following an underwhelming spell in England with Manchester United and Arsenal.

    Mkhitaryan made 117 appearances for Roma – only four others featured more regularly during his time at the club – and directly contributed to 55 goals.

    Indeed, over that period, Lorenzo Pellegrini (56) was the only player to score and assist more goals for the Giallorossi in all competitions.

    He played nine times in Roma’s successful Europa Conference League campaign under Jose Mourinho last time out, with that the Italian side’s first trophy in 60 years.

    Following the expiration of his Roma contract earlier this week, Mkhitaryan was unveiled as an Inter player on Saturday on a reported two-year deal.

    Mkhitaryan posted an emotional farewell to Roma supporters on his social media, reserving special praise for head coach Mourinho.

    “Roma is a truly unique club,” he said in an open letter. “Your support has been outstanding and I will always be very proud of it.

    “When I wore this shirt for the first time, I had a goal: to make this club win and to make its fantastic fans happy. Goal achieved in Tirana! 

    “This triumph was the perfect end to my three years in the Giallorossi. Now it’s time to say goodbye.

    “I want to thank all the people who work in the club for the special relationship built together over the years. 

    “A huge thank you to our technical staff and in particular to Mr. Mourinho for his trust and attention towards me and for the extraordinary motivations he gave me as a player.

    “I gave my all for Roma on and off the pitch. It was a great honour to play here and I will never forget the amazing moments we had together. 

    “This club and the Eternal City will remain forever in my heart. I love you!”

    Mkhitaryan is Inter’s fourth confirmed signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of Andre Onana, Romelu Lukaku and Kristjan Asllani, the latter two joining on loan.

    Simone Inzaghi’s side, who finished second to Milan in a tense Scudetto battle last time out, begin their 2022-23 Serie A campaign away at Lecce on August 13.
