UEFA Tottenham vs Milan – who is Clement Turpin, the referee for the UEFA Champions League
On Wednesday, we will see Tottenham look to make up for their lack of goals from the Serie A side in the quarter-finals.French referee Clement Turpin was appointed to officiate Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 match between Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 40-year-old has been a registered FIFA referee since 2010 and has officiated at two World Cups and two European Championships, as well as the 2021 Europa League final and the 2022 UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool with Real Madrid.
UEFA Champions League experienced Turpin
Turpin has officiated in 542 games in his career, including 257 in Ligue 1 and 40 in the Champions League. However, he managed just three Spurs games, and Spurs won just one of them.
The Frenchman will also be given the all-important task of controlling the game between the two teams, which have had some of the most memorable encounters in the past, when former Tottenham manager Joe Jordan and ex-Milan midfielder Gattuso nearly hit.
Saw the matching game. He was an inseparable go-between for Milan and Porto in their 2021 Champions League clash, and before that he was in charge of the Rossoneri against another north London outfit, Arsenal. In that Europa League match, Milan suffered a 0–2 defeat at home.
In Turpin’s three matches for Spurs, the Londoners won one and lost two, receiving a total of five yellow cards… and a penalty for his side. As far as the game is concerned, he achieved the above results of 1 draw and 1 loss. The Italian has received only one yellow card in those two games.
Tottenham v Milan Who is VAR?
Controversy these days often comes not from the pitch but from the away box of the VAR team. In this game, Spaniard Alejandro Hernandez will be keeping a close eye on the process to spot any glaring and glaring mistakes.
