Armenia national team captain, Roma midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has congratulated his followers on Christmas, expressing confidence that the national will be able to overcome all the challenges it is facing today.
“Today Armenians celebrate their Holy Christmas, which also coincides with the Epiphany. This year however we will mark the Feast of Holy Nativity with heavy hearts,” Mkhitaryan said in a Facebook post on January 6.
“Armenia and Artsakh are challenged to recover both from physical and moral wounds of the war. My compatriots were hit hard. Severe trauma must be treated urgently. And we have to heal our spiritual wounds.”
Armenia, he said, is not only a plot of land, it is also women, men and children with an extraordinary capacity of resilience and force to stand up.
“We have to win over this darkness. With the support of everyone, as did my AS Roma from the very first days of the war, I am firmly convinced we will recover,” the playmaker said.
“We will continue to edify churches, compose operas, paint masterpieces, discover vaccines, score goals…create, innovate, perform and share with the world."
