After scoring the acrobatic goal that effectively sealed Manchester United’s Europa League win, Henrikh Mkhitaryan passed a personal milestone.

Indeed, the 28-year-old Armenian forward won his very first European title – a fate that was promised to him long ago by none other than Youri Djorkaeff.

After seeing his protege lift the trophy, Djorkaeff (himself of Armenian descent) posted a personal message of congratulation to the United match-winner, along with a wonderful old photograph of the pair together…

It wasn’t long before Mkhitaryan responded, thanking Djorkaeff for the faith he’d shown in him over the years…

How sweet. There’s quite literally nothing not to like about Mkhitaryan.

Seems like a lovely chap through and through.
