Barcelona could travel to London as soon as tomorrow, to avoid distruptions, which could be caused by an ash cloud coming from Iceland.
The Spanish Champions take on newly crowned Premier League title winners, Manchester United, on Saturday in the Champions League final.
And coach Pep Guardiola said today that he will not risk jeopardising his team’s travel and would rather get to the UK early than later with problems.
He said: ’We need advice from the experts of course. Let’s see what they tell us and if they say we shouldn’t risk it we’ll travel tomorrow or the day after.”
Barca boss also expressed his worry about the fans not being able to fly over to support his team, although there is no option for the match to be postponed.
“I hope the news tomorrow (Tuesday) will be good because at the end of the day this is a show for the people,” said the 40-year-old.
“It would be very sad to be there in a final and have half the stadium empty because people couldn’t travel.
“It is important to have people there but I don’t think that we could ever delay the final. I hope we can get there but also the fans as it would be pointless to be there without them.”
