UCL:Ancelotti blocks one Real Madrid player from travelling with squad


Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, will not allow Andriy Lunin to travel with the rest of the squad for this weekend’s Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.

The Sun reports that the goalkeeper will not make the trip to London after coming down with flu earlier this week.

Lunin has played most of the game in the competition following injury to Thibaut Courtois.

He was a hero of the penalty shootout victory over Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

Madrid are looking to win the title for a record-extending 15th time.

Ancelotti’s squad will arrive in London on Thursday while Marca reports that Lunin will touch down on either Friday or Saturday to reduce the chances of him transmitting his illness.
