Robbie Savage says he would rather have Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan in his side over Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne.
Mkhitaryan struggled to get into the starting XI near the beginning of the season but his fortunes have changed recently with a string of impressive performances.
The Armenian scored a spectacular scorpion kick in the Red Devils’ 3-1 Boxing Day victory over Sunderland and his play continues to impress fans and pundits.
Savage was talking on Radio 5Live when a United supporter phoned in praising Mkhitaryan by saying he is better than City’s De Bruyne.
“I agree with you,” Savage told the supporter. “I watched a lot of Bundesliga and he was brilliant.
“I would have Mkhitaryan over De Bruyne, yes I would. Both are fantastic players but I’d rather Mkhitaryan.”
