UEFA announced on Monday the identity of the referee who will be at the whistle of the Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan on June 10 in Istanbul. It will be the Polish Szymon Marciniak, in charge of the last World Cup final.

A prosperous season for Szymon Marciniak. A few months after officiating in the World Cup final between France and Argentina (3-3, 2-4 pens), the 42-year-old Polish referee will lead the next Champions League final, opposing Manchester City at Inter Milan on June 10 in Istanbul.

At the whistle of the last Manchester City-Real Madrid

If he has already been on the whistle 42 times in the competition since 2014, including 8 games since the start of the season (and in particular OM-Tottenham), this will be his first final. At the end of last year, Marciniak had refereed three meetings in Qatar with France-Denmark (2-1) and Argentina-Australia (2-1) in addition to the final.

Since the beginning of his career, the Polish official has managed Inter Milan seven times, for a balanced record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. This season, he was in place during the draws against Barça (3-3) and Porto (0-0). His two meetings with Manchester City ended in victories, including the recent demonstration in the semi-final return against Real Madrid (4-0).

His refereeing in the World Cup final criticized

As a reminder, his performance in the final of the last World Cup had been criticized by some, for example – and with a little bad faith – on the third Argentinian goal validated despite the presence of several substitutes on the lawn. “First of all, this situation (for it to be punishable) should affect the game, he had justified. And what was the impact of the guys who got up and jumped on the field? the little beast. There are serious newspapers and those who seek the buzz”.
