Summary

  • Mkhitaryan directly involved in 24 of Dortmund's 75 league goals.
  • More assists (13) than any other Bundesliga player.
  • "Never thought I would play for a club like Dortmund."

Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan is currently enjoying his most influential campaign as a professional footballer. The BVB number ten has provided 13 assists in the league this term - more than any other Bundesliga player - and has also chipped in with 11 goals.

Regarded as something of a hero in his native Armenia, with whom he is the country's all-time top goalscorer, Mkhitaryan was the best player on the pitch in Dortmund’s recent 3-0 victory at VfB Stuttgart, playing a part in all three of his side’s goals. Over the course of the 90 minutes, he was involved in seven of BVB’s 16 attempts at goal.

Thomas Tuchel’s team host VfL Wolfsburg this coming Saturday, and Mkhitaryan will be hoping to pick up where he left off at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
