SOUNDBITE (English) ARSENAL MANAGER UNAI EMERY, SPEAKING ABOUT MKHITARYAN NOT GOING TO THE FINAL, SAYING: "I cannot push him to come with us because I respect him and it's very important if he's with us for the match for help with his quality and his capacity.

But this issue is not in my hands and I respect it 100%." STORY: Arsenal manager Unai Emery said on Tuesday (May 21) he regrets but understands midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan's decision to pull out of the squad for the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku.

The Armenia international's participation in the match on May 29 had been in doubt due to security concerns over the ongoing conflict between Azerbaijan and his native country.

The BBC reported there are no diplomatic relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan because of a dispute over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Mkhitaryan has made 39 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season, scoring six goals.

The 30-year-old won the Europa League crown with Manchester United in 2017.
