Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir to take charge of Champions League final

After a successful World Cup last summer, Cuneyt Cakir will referee the Champions League final.

UEFA has picked Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey to referee the Champions League final.

Cakir, 38, will officiate as Barcelona face Juventus at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6.

Two years ago, Cakir drew criticism when he sent off Manchester United winger Nani in a Champions League last-16 loss against Real Madrid.

However, UEFA defended his decision and the official built his reputation at a successful World Cup. FIFA selected him to handle the Argentina-Netherlands semifinal in Brazil.

Cakir will be assisted by countrymen Bahattin Duran and Tarik Ongun with two additional assistant referees, Huseyin Gocek and Barıs Simsek, also from Turkey. The fourth official will be Jonas Eriksson from Sweden.

UEFA also named 44-year-old English referee Martin Atkinson to work the Europa League final as defending champions Sevilla play Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk at the National Stadium in Warsaw on May 27.

Mike Mullarkey and Stephen Child will be 44-year-old Atkinson's assistants, with Anthony Taylor and Andre Marriner as the additional goal-line officials.

Czech fourth official Pawel Kralovec is the one non-English member of an officiating team completed by reserve assistant referee Jake Collin.

Information from The Associated Press and Press Association was used in this report.
