Torres red card man (2012) will be the Champions final referee


Surely that Atlético de Madrid’s striker Fernando Torres won’t be happy with UEFA’s decission. The referee for Champions League’s final in Milan on May 28th will be Mark Clattenburg, who showed one of the few red cards that Fernando Torres has seen in his career.

When Torres was yet Chelsea’s number 9, he was expelled by Clattenburg through double yellow. It happened on October 20th in 2012 against Manchester United. The English referee’s decission was so controversial that he was suspended one month without work.

Clattenburg will judge the second final between Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. He has been appointed four times to Los Blancos and they have won all those matches. The last game was this season, against PSG (1-0) in the group stage.

On the other hand, Los Rojiblancos has played with Clattenburg as the referee seven times. Four wins, two draws and one defeat. The last match was also this season. It was exactly one month ago, in the victory against Bayern at Vicente Calderón (1-0).
