Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s amazing ‘scorpion’ kick against Sunderland has been voted Manchester United’s Goal of the Season for 2016/17.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic whipped the ball into the Armenian who – while falling forward – threw his right heel at it to score. And Mkhitaryan was chuffed to be the recipient of it. Upon receiving his award, he said: “To be honest, I was impressed as well.”
“I couldn’t imagine I could score such a goal. I didn’t really know what was happening.
“I don’t think you have to practice these kind of goals, you just have to take this quick decision.
“I couldn’t miss this opportunity because I got a great goal from the God.”
