Arsenal’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said it hurts him to miss the Europa League final.
“Having considered all the current options, we had to take the tough decision for me not to travel with the squad to the Europa League Final,” the Armenia captain said in a Facebook post.
“It‘s the kind of game that doesn’t come along very often for us players and I must admit, it hurts me a lot to miss it. I will be cheering my teammates on! Let‘s bring it home Arsenal,” Mkhitaryan continued.
Arsenal issued a statement earlier today, confirming that the player would not travel to Baku for the UEFA Europa League final against Chelsea.
