FC BATE manager Aleksey Baha has dismissed reports of his team celebrating their 1-0 first leg win over Arsenal in the Europa League first leg with burgers last week.

It was reported that the Belarus club celebrated their victory with a late dinner of at Minsk Airport’s Burger King.

"Let me clarify this, no-one was celebrating the victory - especially not with burgers," he told The Evening Standard.

"It was a crazy night after the game and they just wanted to get a few sandwiches before the flight. There is nothing criminal about this and it wasn't a party.

"We have just finished the first half of this tie and if it was a proper party we would have done it with something stronger and tastier."

Baha further revealed his team’s approach for this evening’s second leg where they need to avoid a 2-0 loss.

"We prepared as always, we know who we are playing against and what stage we are at," he said.

"We are going to be motivated and had a good result in the first game so we will give everything we have to qualify further, he said.
