England grant Joleon Lescott permission to leave Under 21s camp for the Champions League final
England have given Under-21 coach Joleon Lescott special dispensation to attend Saturdays Champions League final.
Lescott is on camp with the Young Lions ahead of their European Championship campaign in Romania and Georgia, a tournament that kicks off in under a fortnight [June 21].
The former England centre half helps assist Lee Carsley alongside Ashley Cole but combines that with punditry work for BT Sport.
Lescott officially works for the FA on a consultancy basis, although plays a key role within Carsley's backroom staff and often leads individual training drills.
The FA have allowed Lescott to fulfil his broadcasting duties when Manchester City meet Inter in Turkey and it means the former City defender, who has also been taking part in BTs build-up to the final, will link back up with the Under 21s early next week before they fly out to their base in Georgia.
