The Bosnian striker lauded his new teammate from the Gunners after his brilliant first start for the Italian capital club

Edin Dzeko said he hopes Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains at Roma for a "long time" after his goalscoring debut for the Serie A side in their first victory of the season.

Dzeko, who was also on the scoresheet at Stadio Olimpico, praised his new team-mate post-match and thinks the 30-year-old could have a long future in Rome.

"I expect it from him. I know him as a great player, and he is a very good addition to our attacking team who wants to play football," Dzeko said.

"I am 100 per cent sure he is going to be a big help for us. I was definitely happy to see this transfer happen.

"After we played for our national teams and he scored two goals against us I told him, 'My friend, next games you have to score for Roma as well!'

"He's a great pro. I remember him also from Borussia Dortmund times and he will be a big player for us. Hopefully, he can stay a long time here.

"Hopefully he will [stay]. He will see that we are playing football here and immediately he scored a goal so hopefully, he can have more goals and a lot of assists for us."
