Arsene Wenger: Henrikh Mkhitaryan case should not happen in football
2019-05-24 10:24:57

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has added to the condemnation of UEFA after Henrikh Mkhitaryan confirmed he would not be travelling to Baku for next week's Europa League final.

“That’s something that should not happen in football,” Wenger, who brought Mkhitaryan to Arsenal, told reporters on Thursday.

“In the modern world, politically you cannot play a football game,” he added.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not travel with the team after the Armenian national decided to skip the final amid concerns over his safety due to political tensions between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
