Baku, June 1, AZERTAC

“Arsenal's midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan would be safe in Baku. The security of football players, fans and tourists was organized at the highest level in Baku,” British football fan Richard Scales, who arrived in Baku to watch the UEFA Europa League final on May 29, shared his impressions about Baku and the final game.

"I don’t know why he did this. It’s a pity that he didn’t come. I think he would be safe here," the fan added.

According to Richard Scales, safety was very well ensured in Baku. He said that both on the eve of final game and in the stadium all the security measures for fans and foreign tourists were organized in Baku. “Some Arsenal fans were aggressive when Chelsea scored their third goal. But, honestly, I didn’t see any fights. In general, the atmosphere was very positive. We talked to Chelsea fans," he mentioned.

Richard Scales highly appreciated the atmosphere in Baku. "There were stunning fans cheering on so loudly. I think Arsenal was very nervous, because they wanted to get into the Champions League. I’m upset that we couldn’t win, but I liked the game, the final, Baku, which is a very beautiful city. It's my first time in Baku. All people are friendly here. It was a great trip," he noted.

Another fan, Chris Scales hailed the kind and hospitable attitude of Baku city resident towards the fans and foreign tourists. He noted that both the fans who flew to Baku and Baku citizens were friendly. "If we couldn’t find something in the city, any direction, Azerbaijanis always helped us," Chris said.

Chris Scales said he liked the Baku Olympic Stadium very much. "It's a very good stadium. It was nice to see people from all over the world come here for the game. That's why the atmosphere was so great. I am deeply impressed by the magnificent arena of the country," he added.
