Clattenburg, a former official, resigned from his position in Egypt

Mark Clattenburg, a former referee for the Premier League, has stepped down from his role as the president of the Egyptian Referees Committee after only five months in office.

The emergency meeting had approved the departure of the 47-year-old, according to a statement from the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) on Wednesday.

The Egyptian Football Association tweeted that its board of directors had decided to accept Mr. Mark Clattenburg's resignation at its emergency meeting on Wednesday.

Additionally, they stated that they would work to "preserve the Federation's rights and the consequences of his resignation in accordance with the terms of the concluded contract. ".

This week, Mortada Mansour, the president of Zamalek, criticized Clattenburg on Zamalek's own TV channel.

After three seasons in the Football League, Clattenburg received a promotion to refereeing Premier League games in 2004.

In his final match, Leicester City defeated West Brom 1-0 in April 2017. Prior to that, he had presided over the Euro 2016 final, in which Portugal defeated France 1-0, and the Champions League final, in which Real Madrid defeated rival Athletico the year before.
