Henrikh Mkhitaryan named 'Player of the Year'

For the third year in a row -- and fourth time overall -- Armenian national team's star midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been voted as the country's "Player of the Year."

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who moved earlier in the summer from a FC Shakhtar Donetsk transfer, took first place honors by collecting 244 points; Yura Movsisyan placed second (177 points), followed by Aras Ozbiliz (47 points), respectively.

"It's really good that I was named the best once again, yet Movsisyan and Özbiliz were worthy candidates for the award as well," Mkhitaryan said. "I'm desperate to help our country achieve even more. My successes would never come without the team. Football is a team sport, and I would like to thank all my team-mates."

“It is a true honor to be named 2013 Footballer of the Year in Armenia and I share this with my teammates on the National Team,” Mkhitaryan added on his Facebook page.
