After being left out of the squad for Manchester United’s last two match days, it appears the future of Henrikh Mkhitaryan is up in the air again.
The midfielder has not enjoyed a good relationship with Jose Mourinho since he joined the Red Devils last season, despite helping them win the Europa League.
The loss to Basel on Wednesday starts a run of 13 games in 40 days for Manchester United until the new year, but it seems Mkhitaryan would play a limited role in those fixtures.
With Paul Pogba, and Marouane Fellaini back in midfield and Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford first choice wingers, the Armenian seem to have his work cut out in terms of getting back into the thinking of Jose Mourinho.
This is the latest twist in a troubled Manchester United career of former Borussia Dortmund man. He had to wait a month before making his United debut last season but was so dismal in his first game that he was substituted at halftime. He then disappeared for two months before reemerging to score 11 goals in all competitions.
He also started this season well and has provided five assists in the Premier League already this season, but Jose Mourinho clearly expects more from him.
