Emil Sutovsky announced about his decision on his Facebook page:

"Anticipating the questions, I have maintained mutually respectful relations with Azerbaijani side, however, there were considerable reasons for me to refuse the offer of taking such a responsible and serious post. I know this might disappoint some of my fellow-countrymen, but I have to lead Odlar Yurdu, the team of young Azerbaijani players, at the European Team Chess Championship in a status of playing captain already in two weeks. Root for us!," Sutovsky wrote.   

Yet it is unknown who will head the Azerbaijani team. According to Faik Gasanov's recent commentary (in Russian) Alexander Khalifman should become the captain.
