I haven’t really watched him that many times since his arrival but from what I’ve seen I’m not really ready to put him in that company yet, especially Pires’. I’d be glad to hear arguments to the contrary, especially any statistical ones.
Agree with this - Pires was insanely good when he was healthy… so tricky and did more with this physical tools than anyone I can remember since Cruyff.
Being worthy of the mantle and being as good as those before him are two different things. Mkhitaryan has the pedigree and ability to wear the shirt most definitely. It’s almost unfair to compare to Pires.
Nobody compares to Pires
