Mkhitaryan thanks fans for messages of support as Manchester United star continues recovery from hamstring injurySPORT
Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan took to Twitter to thank supporters for their well-wishes, the Daily Mail reports.
The attacking midfielder is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered against St Etienne in the Europa League.
He was forced to come off and subsequently missed out on United's triumph in the EFL Cup final against Southampton.
Mkhitaryan said: “Your get well messages are really helping me with my recovery! Thank U.'
He posted a picture of himself with a thumbs up, decorated with a number of messages from fans.
One read: “I love you, I miss you.” Another said: Get well soon man, the football world needs you!”
The 28-year-old got off to a slow start to his Old Trafford career but has gradually grown in influence for Jose Mourinho.
He has become one of the Portuguese's most dangerous attacking threats with an eye for goal and Mourinho will hope to see his man back in action sooner rather than later.
United take on Bournemouth at home in their next encounter though it remains to be seen whether the Armenian will be fit in time.
