Uefa president Michel Platini has insisted that he ‘does not care about the nationality’ of sides competing in the UEFA Champions League.
Platini has previously been critical of the Premier League’s recent dominance in Europe’s most prestigious competition.
Like last season, three English sides have qualified for the Champions League semi-finals this campaign.
Platini, though, told Sky Sports News: “When you get to the semi-final there are many, many ingredients. Not because there are two English teams. There could be one Spanish and one English.
“It is not a question of nationality, it is a question of the spirit you want to give.
“They [United and Arsenal] are two great teams, two big teams and I don’t care about the nationality.
“You have to consider that the result on the field is the most important thing.
