Gianluca Rocchi appointed for UEFA Europa League final in Baku

The UEFA Referees Committee has announced today that Gianluca Rocchi will referee the 2019 UEFA Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal at the Baku Olympic Stadium on Wednesday 29 May (kick-off at 23.00 local time/21.00CET).

Rocchi has been an international referee since 2008. This season, the 45-year-old Italian has officiated at six UEFA Champions League matches. This will be the first UEFA Europa League final that Rocchi has overseen, after handling the fourth referee duties in the 2010 encounter between Atlético Madrid and Fulham, as well as the 2017 UEFA Europa League final between Ajax and Manchester United. The same year, he was in charge of the UEFA Super Cup match between Manchester United and Real Madrid.

He will be assisted by compatriots Filippo Meli and Lorenzo Manganelli at the final in Baku, with Daniele Orsato taking the role of fourth official. The video assistant referee team will be led by Massimiliano Irrati, supported by Marco Guida, Szymon Marciniak, and Pawel Sokolnicki.

He did a (Lover spell) for me. 24 hours later, my (Ex-Boyfriend) came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again.

    3. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/

  2. Congrats.
    So skomina for the finalz

  3. No surprises here regarding referee, 4th and VAR in my opinion.
    Guida and Meli can travel from Poland (U20WC) to Baku together with Marciniak and Sokolnicki.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think that Rocchi appointment for this final is deserved. He could have achieved more in his career, but he was always behind the shadow of Rizzoli, who got big games and finals before him. This assignment was in my opinion the minimum for the Italian, who will leave the FIFA list on next December.
    A particular remark about Manganelli, today he got also the appointment for Coppa Italia final, on next Wednesday (main referee Banti). A very special day for him with two appointments for major finals.

    1. Age limit of 45 rule, was disbanded couple of years back, by FIFA . Why would Rochii be taken off the list ? Interesting to know .

      Delete
    2. Because in Italy it stays as mandatory age for retirement, according to AIA rules.
      After 45 years old, you must get a derogation.

    3. Thanks for that piece of info.

  5. Intresting to see Irrati and Marciniak both in same final... Any chance for one of them for final of UCL since they ware both doing well withh Skomina in games Ajax - Real(marciniak) and Psg-Mutd (irrati)?

    1. I think that in Champions League we will see a different VAR team, it would be too much to appoint the same officials for two finals in just a couple of days...

    2. Thanks for info/oppinion:)

      Delete
    3. Probably Makkelie as VAR? Or Dankert/Zwayer?

      Delete
    4. I would say Makkelie.
      Irrati WC (and EL) final, Makkelie CL final.
      However, not sure because Makkelie never got a game with Skomina and indeed he had only Italian / Polish VARs... let's wait and we will know.

      Delete
    5. Maybe we will see Spanish VARs with a Spanish referee? Skomina or Lahoz, that is the big question. Hopefully, we will know more soon.

      Delete
    6. Skomina worked with Makkelie, Soares Dias and Orsato as VAR at the WC and with Marciniak and Irrati in CL.
      Soares Dias (surprisingly) and Orsato were not used by UEFA as VAR in CL so far, so they should be impossible.
      I also think, that Maricniak and Irrati are unlikely after the EL final.
      So Makkelie seems to be the obvious choice (also because is one of the biggest VAR experts) for Skomina. Probably with van Boekel as one AVAR. The other AVAR could be Zwayer, Dankert, Hernandez, Kamphuis - or even Kuipers.
      If it's Mateu, the VAR should be Hernandez anyway - maybe supported by Makkelie.

    2. Just remembered , last time - last season , if I am not mistaken , on a similar Monday like this after completion of Semis , the Referees Committee debated a lot and let know the names of Bjorn Kuipers for Europa and Milorad Mazic for Champs league final , at about 19.00 CET. Recall it like that. Perhaps , this time announcement , any time now.

  8. Strange that no reserve assistant referee has been appointed for EL final. Maybe UEFA has not published his name.

    This red card from Sunday has been overturned so the player can play in the FA Cup final.

    1. On the Premier League Channel, in the Refwatch segment, Chris Foy said the the decision to send off the player was correct.
      https://streamable.com/fyx2u
      So this raises the question, why was the red card overturned?

    2. Because the teams and even more so money control the officiating and disciplinary matters in the EPL

  18. To my point of view, the delay of appointment referee for UCL final is an opportunity to appoint Lahoz for the final)

  19. OT: In regards to concussions

    "The United Soccer League, which contains leagues in the second, third and fourth tiers in the United States and Canada, has submitted a prospective rule change to the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the body that determines the laws of the game in the sport, that would allow for a "head injury substitution." This would allow teams to more carefully examine players with head injuries without having to burn a full substitution."

    "The USL's aim is to have the rule in place in the second-tier USL Championship and third-tier USL League One -- assuming IFAB approves the rule -- in time for the 2020 season."

    "The rule, as proposed, would work in the following manner: If a player on a team suffers a head injury during a match, the team can use a temporary substitute to take his or her place. This would allow for the injured player to be properly assessed without forcing his or her team to play shorthanded. The substitution can take place even if the team has used all of their allotted substitutions. If the injured player is deemed healthy enough to continue, they can reenter the match in place of the injury substitute. If not, the injury sub stays on the field and is made permanent, unless all of the allotted subs have been used. In that case, the injury substitute would have to come out of the game."

  29. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 3 kids for another woman after 8 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart because it was too painful to bear. I was hurt and confused didnt know what to do I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr UDI a spellcaster not just a spellcaster but a powerful one indeed and he can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me and told me to go cool off wish i eventally did. To my greatest surprises, few days later, my husband came back home. what i taught was imposible became possible because of DR UDI. That was how we Became reunited again and renewed our vows and believe me there lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
    You can as well contact DR UDI, a powerful spell-caster for solutions on his contact Ultimatespellhome@gmail.com or via Whats App: +2348051243538
