Champions League: ‘There will be no Clattenburg’, Madrid mayor believes in Atlético’s coronation

José Luis Martinez-Almeida, mayor of Madrid, believes in a final victory of Atlético Madrid in the Champions League… As England referee Mark Clattenburg, who played a role in the scenario of the final against Real in 2016, no longer officiates.

This year is the right one for José Luis Martinez-Almeida. The mayor of Madrid is convinced that Atlético, of which he is a well-known supporter, can finally win the 2019-2020 Champions League, if it resumes as hoped in August. He wants proof of the surprising elimination of Liverpool by Diego Simeone’s team in the round of 16.

“It will be the Champions of Atlético. We eliminated the champion in the strangest season,” he told COPE.

“This time there will be no Mark Clattenburg”

Above all, the elected official thinks that no one will be able to be on the road to the Colchernos, who have already been beaten twice in the final: “The third time will be the right one. This time there will be no Mark Clattenburg.”

Why this tackle on the former England referee? Simply because he is the man who validated, despite an offside, the opening score of Sergio Ramos for Real Madrid in the final of 2016 lost on penalties by Atlético. He recently admitted it. “We realized that at half-time. It was a difficult decision. We took the wrong one with my assistant,” the Briton admitted to the Daily Mail.
