Unai Emery respects UEFA’s decision to move Arsenal’s Europa League tie against Vorskla Poltava to Kiev
Unai Emery says Arsenal will respect UEFA’s decision to move their Europa League tie against Vorskla Poltava to Kiev.
The venue for the Group E clash was switched to Kiev’s Olympic Stadium from the Stadion Vorskla in Poltava – around 185 miles east of the Ukrainian capital – after martial law was declared in some regions of the country.
In a statement released on Wednesday UEFA apologised to both sets of supporters for the inconvenience of the switch – which was announced on Tuesday – and says it will send senior security experts to assess the situation in Ukraine.
