MUM'S THE WORD

Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan causes online stir after snap of his mum resurfaces

The Armenian winger has been in blistering form for Jose Mourinho's Red Devils so far this season... but it it all down to a mother's love?

Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has enjoyed a fine start to the campaign.

After a tricky beginning to life at Old Trafford, the Armenian is finally starting to show why Jose Mourinho made him one of his first signings for the Red Devils.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan caused quite a storm when he posted the above snap of him and his mum in March

The 28-year-old has notched up an impressive five assists in his three Premier League matches this season – more than he got in total in 2016/17.

And if that was not enough to get United fans buzzing, a picture that has resurfaced online has sent the Stretford End into meltdown.

But we are not sure whether Mkhitaryan will be as pleased with all the attention it is receiving.

His new-found popularity among the Red Army has seen an image of the attacker’s mother begin to go viral.

Mkhitaryan uploaded the snap of him alongside his mum back in March to celebrate her birthday.

And she is just as attractive as his stats for Jose Mourinho’s men over the past few weeks.

Along with the photo, he wrote in the caption: “A mother’s love is like nothing else in the world. Happy Birthday Mom!”

It’s unclear how old his doting parent, Marina Taschyan, actually is – but fans can not believe how young and good looking she looks.

And here’s what Twitter had to say:

One thing is for sure… next time Mkhitaryan gets a lovely pic with his mother, we are sure he will be keeping it mum’s the word!
