English referee Mark Clattenburg resigned on Tuesday from his position as president of the Egyptian Referees Committee just after five months in charge, a statement read by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA).
Clattenburg was appointed on 5 August 2022 to improve the level of Egyptian referees who have come under fire for below-par performances during the previous seasons
The reports have referred, however, to disagreements between the Englishman and officials in the EFA which led to his ouster.
The board of directors of EFA will hold an urgent meeting on Wednesday to decide on Clattenburg’s resignation.
