YEREVAN (Armradio) — “Everything is OK at Manchester United,” Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan told reporters in Yerevan today.
Despite receiving little playing time at Man Utd, Mkhitaryan says nothing can prevent him from moving forward. “I have passed a long way to reach where I am now. Nothing can prevent me from achieving my dream,” Mkhitaryan said.
“If I give in now, it will mean I have achieved nothing and done nothing to reach there. I will find the strength to struggle in this situation,” the midfielder said. He pledged to do his best to reach his goal.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan talked to reporters after being appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Armenia. The appointment comes on the occasion of UNICEF’s global 70th anniversary, which is marked in December 2016.
Together with UNICEF, Mkhitaryan will encourage Armenian families to get active and enable a fair chance for every child in the country with a focus on children’s and young people’s rights to get quality learning from early years and quality education in an inclusive environment.
“It’s very sad to see that not all children have the same opportunities to attend school and they don’t get access to quality early learning and education. All children should be able to enjoy the opportunity to reach their full potential so they can become productive citizens,” said Mkhitaryan. “I am truly honored to become a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. I want to utilize my platform to help UNICEF advocate for every child’s right to education in Armenia, especially for those who are most vulnerable,” he added.
