The Giallorossi captain was given a second yellow card near the end of the match after he was adjudged to have elbowed a Zebrette player in an aerial challenge by referee Antonio Rapuano.
“I can’t say anything,” Mkhitaryan said to DAZN. “We have lost our captain for the derby, a leader that lifts the others up.
“We hope that we certain moments like happen anymore. It was not a second yellow card but now it has happened. We must think of Sunday’s game.”
“I can play where I played today, but the coach always decides if I am a support striker or a winger,” the Giallorossi attacker said.
“The important thing is to win, not where I play.”
