As FFA officical site was informed by FFA Competitions organizing committee, Armenian natiomal team captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan will probably miss upcoming matches of Armenian national team against Romania and Poland. Football Federation of Armenia received an official letter from Manchester United FC on the permission of Henrikh Mkhitaryan`s withdrawal from upcoming training camp and official matches. The head of Manchester United FC Medicine and Science medical, Dr. Steve McNally wrote:
"Henrikh is still undergoing late stage rehabilitation from the left thigh muscle injury that he sustained earlier this month whilst playing for Manchester United. Although his progress has been good over the past week, he is participating in limited aspects of team training and is not yet able to train fully without restrictions or play competitively. In view of that I would be grateful if he could be allowed to withdraw from the National Team for the forthcoming training camp and FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches in order to remain in Manchester to complete his rehabilitation."
