Bernd Leno Slams Europa League Final In Baku
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has slammed the Europa League final being held in Baku, amid political hostilities between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not travel with Unai Emery’s squad due to concerns over his safety, which leaves the Gunners without a regular performer.
Reacting, Leno confessed that the whole debacle makes him feel “sad”.
“It’s a scandal that he cannot play because of that, he works hard all season and cannot come to such a final for political reasons,” he told Kicker.

The Frenchman had expressed eagerness to manage one of his former clubs in England or Italy at some stage.
He has told PA Sport: “I would love one day to manage one of the teams I played for in Italy or England.”
Arsenal in for Saliba
Saint-Etienne are hoping to work out a sale and loan back deal with Arsenal for defender William Saliba, according to le10sport.
Saliba signed a new deal with the club a few weeks ago through 2023 but would be willing to sell for €30 million (£26m/$34m) though would hope for a loan back for next season.
Arsenal are amenable to that type of arrangement, but Manchester United are also lurking for the 18-year-old Saliba, along with the likes of Benfica.
