Watch the moment Henrikh Mkhitaryan tells his Arsenal team-mates he will miss the Europa League final

Arsenal's Henrikh Mkhitaryan brought the squad together before practice on May 21 to tell them he will not be going to Baku for the Europa league final in Baku. The Arsenal midfielder and Armenian national team's captain is concerned for his safety because of a dispute between Armenia and host country Azerbaijan. The conflict between the two countries centers around the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Arsenal manager Unai Emery said “We cannot do anything for this issue. It’s a very personal decision. We need to respect him."
