FC Shakhtar Donetsk's attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been
voted Armenian player of the year for the third time, finishing ahead
of Yura Movsisyan and Aras Özbiliz.

In a poll of Football Federation of Armenia (FFA) executive committee
members, club presidents and head coaches and media, Mkhitaryan earned
296 points to finish ahead of his international team-mates Yura
Movsisyan (90 votes), who recently moved to FC Spartak Moskva, and
midfielder Aras Özbiliz (58) of FC Kuban Krasnodar. Mkhitaryan, who
collected the Golden Boot award from FFA president Ruben Hayrapetyan,
also won the poll in 2009 and 2011.

`I am proud that I play for Armenia and that I've been voted my
country's best player,' he told UEFA.com. `Every player dreams of
recognition in his homeland. Such high trust has to be justified with
deeds not with words, and a player's deed is his football. This season
is going great for me but I am not going to stop. This is just the
first step on the way to success.'
