Mourinho onfirmed that Mkhitaryan has recovered from his injury but will not be rushed back into action until he is ready to take the field again.
‘He was injured and he was injured for quite a long time. Now, he’s not injured anymore,’ Mourinho told the Manchester United website.
‘He’s training with the team without any limitation. I cannot confirm if he’s [ready] for tomorrow or not, but he’s fit and it’s now time for him to go back to the levels we know that he can achieve.’
Manchester United will now welcome Fenerbahce to Old Trafford when the two sides meet in the Europa League on Thursday.
