Roma new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed that he was no longer happy at Arsenal before his loan move to the Serie A.
Mkhitaryan joined Roma on a season-long loan from the English Premier League club.
He has been officially unveiled and now wants to focus on his new deal.
“Now I am in Rome and I focus on them.
“This is not a step backwards as a great football is played here. I wanted to change scenery and for me it is an opportunity to be seized.
“I have to enjoy playing football, no matter the place.
"I no longer felt happy. Maybe I was not fitting so well in English football.
“The messages after the two national matches made me happy, but now I have to concentrate on Rome.
“I will never give up and I will fight to the end. I'm not afraid of pressure, I'm used to it having already played with great teams.
“I know that the slightest mistake is criticised while a good performance is exalted. If you agree to play soccer you must be ready to face criticism.
“Serie A is a great opportunity, I accepted immediately with enthusiasm. We didn't even talk about money.”
