Germany: UEFA ambassador C. Karembeu greets CL final fans

Former Real Madrid star and current UEFA ambassador Christian Karembeu signed autographs and had his photo taken with fans in Berlin, Thursday. The retired French ace previously presented the UEFA Champions League trophy to fans alongside 'Senator for the Interior and Sports' Frank Henkel and treasurer of the German football association Rainer Grindel. The three took to a make-shift stage by one of Berlin's most famous landmarks, posing for photographs as they held the most prized asset in global club football. Kicking off at 20:45 CET at Berlin's Olympiastadion, the Champions League final witnesses favourites FC Barcelona face Italian champions Juventus FC. The Blaugrana can make history by becoming the first club in footballing history to win two trebles after already securing La Liga and the Copa del Rey. Juventus have already secured Serie A and the Coppa Italia this term, meaning a victory on Saturday will result in them winning their first ever treble. Only seven teams have won a treble in the past: Celtic in 1967, Ajax in 1972, PSV in 1988, Manchester United in 1999, Barcelona in 2009, Inter in 2010 and Bayern in 2013.
