UEFA have announced that Damir Skomina will referee the UEFA Champions League final between Premier League clubs Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
The referee has previously been in charge of 4 UEFA Champions League games in the 2018/19 season, with Man United’s 3:1 win at Parc des Princes against Ligue I giants PSG inclusive.
The 42-year-old Slovenian referee will officiate the game scheduled for June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.
Skomina was the man in charge of proceedings in the Europa League final in 2017 when Man United beat Ajax, and also officiated Atletico Madrid’s triumph over Chelsea in the Super Cup in 2012.
It can be recalled that Skomina brandished the fasted red card in last year’s World Cup to Colombian defender Carlos Sanchez in the 4th minute of the game against Japan.
