I believe that UEFA is professional enough to follow the texts that he has written to the letter. , we want to go to the end of the process because I want to go to detail and be sure that the rules are respected. After, as stated today, the games are reversed and we have to play & # 39; r goes back at Arsenal, I do not want to talk about it for hours and hours. " It's still waiting for UEFA explanations.
