Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to miss the Europa League final with his Arsenal team facing Chelsea.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan faces missing the Europa League final due to a political dispute between his country Armenia and Azerbaijan.
The Gunners reached the Europa League final with a victory over Valencia in their semi-final second leg.
Mkhitaryan came in the game as a substitute but he’s now facing a headache and won’t be featured in the final of May 29 because he won’t get a visa from Azerbaijan.
The tournament will be played in Azerbaijan, and as a result of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, there is a political dispute between the two countries for 30 years.
The war between the two countries ended in 1994, but there were no diplomatic contacts between the two countries after that.
Arsenal will require a visa for all players to enter Azerbaijan, but there is no guarantee that the former Manchester United will get one.
