Russian official Alexei Sorokin has assured Arsenal fans that they will have nothing to fear during next month’s Europa League quarter-final tie against CSKA Moscow. The Gunners will play the first-leg of the last-eight stage in their home turf before heading for the decider in Moscow.As a result, the Gunners’ official website had published warning about the anti-British sentiments in the city, amid the political tension between the two nations.
However, speaking on TASS, Sorokin appeared to play down any safety concerns for the visiting supporters, the chief of the World Cup organising committee said: "We will ensure security in equal measures to all, from dignitaries to fans. It is a shame that the games will be played in such circumstances. There are absolutely no grounds for such warnings. To us, there is no difference which country people come from or what our diplomatic relations with them are."
