Oblak unsure over Atletico Madrid future

Around 300 fans travelled to Russia for the Europa League tie against CSKA Moscow

Wenger admitted he stepped aside to unite a fanbase fed up with years of mediocre results having been spoiled by success and silky football in the first decade of the Frenchman's reign.

Mkhitaryan damaged a knee ligament against CSKA Moscow in the quarterfinals last month, but Wenger had said last week that there was a chance he could return for Thursday's match against Atletico.

Atletico Madrid have significant pedigree in European competition having finished as runners-up in the Champions League in 2014 and 2016, as well as winning the Europa League in 2010 and 2012.

"Season after season he has challenged, not just in the Champions League but in La Liga too, with a team that has a big budget but nowhere near that of Barcelona and Real Madrid".

Oblak was asked directly if he could leave the capital club this summer and he insists his only focus was on finishing the season strongly with Diego Simeone's side.

Atletico Madrid defender Juanfran is set to miss both legs of the club's Europa League semi-final tie with Arsenal because of a hamstring injury.

Arsenal will play host to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League on Thursday night. "That's hard, and you need a special type of manager to do that".

The 33-year-old was substituted in the 65th minute of his side's 0-0 draw against Real Betis in their Spanish League encounter Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday.

Atletico, who go to Emirates Stadium on Thursday, have kept 11 consecutive clean sheets at home in all competitions.

And Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has revealed that Costa is unlikely to be fit for Thursday's first leg, although he does harbour hope of him being ready for the return clash in Spain.
