Arsenal fans criticise UEFA following Henrikh Mkhitaryan decision

Arsenal fans were left devastated when it was confirmed by the club that winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan won’t be making the trip to Baku for the Europa League final.

The former Manchester United player’s Armenian nationality means that entering Azerbaijan is a difficult prospect given the political tension and history between the two nations, and although there was hope Mkhitaryan would be able to make the trip because of the circumstances, the attacker will be left behind in north London for the final.
