Dortmund players speak on Mkhitaryan’s absence from upcoming match in Azerbaijan

German national football squad and Borussia Dortmund (BVB; Germany) goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller considered it correct that Dortmund did not take along Armenia international and BVB midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Thursday’s Europa League group stage away match against Gabala FK (Azerbaijan).

“Leaving Mkhitaryan in Dortmund was the right decision; that’s what the security considerations demanded,” Kicker magazine of Germany quoted Weidenfeller. “It would be better like this.”

Dortmund midfielder Jonas Hofmann, on the other hand, expressed regret that Mkhitaryan is not with the team.

“Unfortunately, Mkhitaryan stayed at home,” he said. “It was the decision of the club.”
