Uefa have apologised to Arsenal and Chelsea over the travel chaos fans must face to attendĀ the Europa League Final in Baku.

Uefa, though, defended the decision to award the showpiece final to Baku.

"We are really sorry for the problems that your (and Chelsea's) fans are encountering trying to organise their journey to Baku.

Uefa competitions director Giorgio Marchetti said: "It goes without saying that an all-English final played by two London teams was not a very predictable event at the time of the appointment.

We would welcome a joint effort with your club in this respect."

"Our experts are keenly working on this matter with a view to help find cheaper solutions for travelling fans.

Supporters heading out from London are facing a round trip of some 2,500 miles to attend the game.
