Shakhtar unhappy with Mkhitaryan absence

25 June 2013 15:56

Liverpool target Henrikh Mkhitaryan has attracted the ire of Shakhtar Donetsk director Sergei Palkin after missing the start of pre-season.

The Armenian attacker, who has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield of late, was scheduled to join up with his team-mates to begin training on Monday.

However, after Mkhitaryan failed to report for work at the Ukrainian club's training ground, Palkin has suggested he will be fined, although dismissed any talk of a possible move to Liverpool.

"To clarify, yesterday he did not appear at the training with Shakhtar and he should have," he told Championat.

"We do not know why. If he doesn’t turn up in the near future then he will be fined. He has not had any contact with Liverpool and I’m sure the reports of negotiations are just rumours.

"A bid from Liverpool to us regarding Mkhitaryan has not come. Why has he acted this way? You’ll have to ask him that."

Mkhitaryan netted a Ukrainian Premier League record 25 goals in 28 appearances last season as Shakhtar took the top-flight title.
