Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has been forced to leave Egypt following 'harsh criticism and personal attacks' from a club president, it's been claimed.

Clattenburg, 47, was appointed the head of Egypt's refereeing committee last June, shortly after the association was created. The Englishman was brought in after local referees were criticised by clubs in the Egyptian Premier League during the 2021/22 campaign.

Yet it appears Clattenburg's time in Egypt is up. Zamalek president Mortada Mansour has allegedly made remarks about Clattenburg's personal life. It is claimed those comments have led to threats from Zamalek fans, with the retired referee fearing for his safety.

As reported by Egyptian outlet Ahram Online, Clattenburg has stepped down from his position after disagreements between him and officials in the Egyptian Football Association (EFA). It is thought Clattenburg's resignation still needs to be ratified by the EFA.
