Arsene Wenger has aimed criticism at UEFA for a 'nightmare' decision the body made for the 2018/19 season's Europa League.

Arsenal will play Chelsea in the final of the competition on May 29 and many have questioned the organisers for their choice of venue.

Aside the fact that Baku, Azerbaijan, is not a place where many can afford to get to as a result of high cost, its political issue with Armenia has also affected participation of some supporters and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

This to the former Arsenal manager is not proper especially in this age of advancement and he has not hidden his feelings in this regard.

"It's a little bit of a nightmare [for the fans]," said Wenger.

"The teams have no problem. They live in ideal conditions - they have their private jet, nice business seats. But it's the fans.

"That [Mkhitaryan's situation] is something that should not happen in football.

"I feel it's not normal that in 2019 - inside Europe, with very sophisticated democracies - that you cannot play for political reasons."
