Henrikh Mkhitaryan impressed with Borussia Dortmund fans

Borussia Dortmund's summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan declares himself impressed with the atmosphere created by home fans on his full debut last weekend.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has thanked the club's fans for a "perfect" reception on his debut last weekend.

The Armenian made his bow for Dortmund in Sunday's 2-1 win over Eintracht Braunschweig, helping Jurgen Klopp's side make it two wins from two in the Bundesliga.

Mkhitaryan believes that he has room for improvement after playing catch-up in pre-season thanks to an ankle injury, and is confident of making quick strides with regular minutes on the pitch.

He told Ruhr Nachrichten: "The crowd's [reception] was perfect. The atmosphere here is great and I do not lack support here. I'm enjoying every day.

"I am very happy, because we still won in the end. The most important thing is the three points. I was very impressed and excited before the game as it was my debut.

"I can certainly play better and I should have grabbed a goal. I hope that I'll be in better shape quickly. The injury is certainly in the past, I am fit."

The 24-year-old is in contention for his second Dortmund appearance on Friday when Klopp's side continue their league campaign against Werder Bremen.
