We are very disappointed to announce that
Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be travelling
with the squad for our Uefa Europa League
final against Chelsea.
We have thoroughly explored all the options
for Micki to be part of the squad but after
discussing this with Micki and his family we
have collectively agreed he will not be in our
We have written to Uefa expressing our deep
concerns about this situation. Micki has been
a key player in our run to the final so this is a
big loss for us from a team perspective.
We’re also very sad that a player will miss out
on a major European final in circumstances
such as this, as it is something that comes
along very rarely in a footballer’s career.
Micki will continue to be part of our
preparations until we depart for Baku at the
Arsenal will be facing Chelsea on may 29 in
the Uefa Europa cup final.
They will be looking forward to win in order
to secure a place in the Uefa Champions
League next season.
