Mourinho: Mkhitaryan will be a success at United, eventually

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Jose Mourinho does not doubt that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be a success at Manchester United.

It just might take some time.

Mkhitaryan, a $33.5 million signing from Borussia Dortmund in July, has not played for United since being substituted at halftime in the 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League on Sept. 10. He sustained a minor injury on international duty with Armenia in early October but hasn't even been in United's 18-man squad for recent games.
