Qarabag head trainer Gurban Gurbanov considers Arsenal have”rescued” Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the strain of playing before a massive audience in Azerbaijan by leaving the participant in the home. Tensions exist between Mkhitaryan Armenia after having a battle over the contested land and Azerbaijan.
Mkhitaryan didn’t journey to confront Azerbaijan Premier League side Gabala while using Borussia Dortmund in 2015, though he had been advised by UEFA he would be granted a visa when we desired to create the journey. A similar scenario has happened this time around, since it’s known because his teammates traveling to their Europa League match the 29-year-old will be staying in London.
Talking on the eve of this competition Gurbanov, that also oversees the Azerbaijan national group, explained why he believes Mkhitaryan won’t be playing Thursday night.
“I did not want politics to disrupt the game but we could do nothing on this matter,” he explained. “But Arsenal attempted to conserve player but it isn’t a thing for us if he’s coming or not.
Arsenal could be fearful that facing 60,000 Azerbaijani lovers, Mkhitaryan has some strain and that’s the reason why they did not send Mkhitaryan.”
