Chelsea and Manchester City fans should not travel to Turkey for the Champions League final, says transport secretary Grant Shapps, after he added the country to England’s travel red list.
The biggest game in European football is set to take place in Istanbul on 29 May.
Schapps said Covid-19 red list countries “should not be visited except in the most extreme circumstances”.
He added that the government was open to hosting the game in England.
Schapps said that the Football Association is in talks with Uefa about switching the game, but that it is “ultimately a decision for Uefa”.
