Henrikh Mkhitaryan featured in New York Times

Thursday's print edition of the New York Times features a story on Armenian soccer sensation Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Penned by writer Rob Hughes, the piece, titled "Mkhitaryan Is Not the Leading Scorer, but He’s Leading the Way," profiles Borussia Dortmund's latest marquee acquisition.

Hughes writes, "I am drawn toward Mkhitaryan because while he is new to Dortmund, having transferred there from Donetsk a few months ago, he already looks a like a spiritual leader of the team.

An intelligent young man, determined to study law while he is a player, Mkhitaryan is also now learning his sixth language, German — he already speaks Armenian, Russian, English, French and Portuguese."
