Arsenal and Chelsea are preparing for the Europa League final, which will take in Baku. One of Arsenal key stars, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, won’t be able to travel with the team due to safety reasons.
After the club and the player himself made a statement, fans were demanding UEFA to change the location in a support of the Armenian midfielder.
However, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin thinks that there is no need to change anything.
“If football allows itself to be stopped by such tensions, then we will not be able to organise anything in future,” said Ceferin.
“We managed to organise a safe European Championships in France when the country was a target of terrorist attacks.”
“If you ask me, there is no need to change anything,” he added.
