Slovenia’s Damir Skomina has been chosen to referee the Champions League final between Spurs and Liverpool.

It is the same referee who awarded Manchester United a controversial late penalty in their knockout victory over PSG in March.

PSG attacker Neymar was later given a three-game ban following his comment about the decision that was made by the referee. The Brazilian described it “a disgrace” on social media.

The Champions League final will take place at Wanda Metropolitano, the home of Atletico Madrid, on June 1, kick off at 8PM BST.

Skomina was also in charge for the 2017 Europa League final between Manchester United and Ajax plus the UEFA Super Cup match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in 2012.

He was fourth official when Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final while has refereed four of the competition’s fixtures this season, including Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Napoli which secured a spot in the last 16.

The 42-year-old will be assisted in the Madrid final by his compatriots Robert Vukan and Jure Praprotnik. Spaniard Mateu Lahoz will be the fourth official.

The video assistant referee will be Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands, supported by fellow countryan Pol van Boekel and German officials Felix Zwayer and Mark Borsch.

On the other hand, the Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal will have Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi.
