Former member of London’s Arsenal and the national team of England Ian Wright has criticized UEFA in response to Arsenal’s official statement that midfielder of Armenia’s national football team Henrikh Mkhitaryan won’t be participating in the final of the UEFA Europa League to be held in Baku.
“Absolute disgrace from UEFA. How is this allowed to happen?! It’s all lip service!!! You don’t actually care about the fans or the players!!” Wright tweeted.
After discussions with Mkhitaryan and his family, Arsenal decided that the Armenian footballer won’t leave for Baku.
Arsenal’s opponent in the final will be London’s Chelsea.
