Arsenal woes as forward is set to miss the Europa Final in Baku
May 21, 2019
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery
earlier on Tuesday admitted to the media that former Manchester united
star and Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s injury, is far from ideal.
“It’s bad news but we
cannot do anything for this issue, it’s a very personal decision and we need to
respect him,” Emery said. “I don’t understand the political problems
now, but I must respect [his decision].
“I spoke this morning with Mkhitaryan and it’s a personal decision. I respect him. He wants to play to help us by being with the team but they spoke, both him and his family, and decided not to go.
“I come from the Basque
Country and we had a big political problem that finished five or six years ago,
and I can understand it is a very personal decision for his family and also
thinking in their country.
“I cannot push him to
come with us because I respect him. For me, it is very important if he is with
us for the match to help with his quality and capacity, but this issue is not
in my hands, but I respect his decision 100 per cent.”
