The Egyptian Football Association announced on Tuesday that England’s Mark Clattenburg had submitted his resignation from the presidency of the Referees Committee in the local federation.

The union said in a statement posted on its Facebook page that an emergency meeting will be held on Wednesday to decide on Clattenburg’s resignation.

The local federation added, “The Egyptian Federation stressed that the Referees Committee will continue its work under the leadership of Mohamed Farouk, Vice-Chairman of the Committee.” Clattenburg has chaired the Referees Committee since last August.

Clattenburg, 47, managed his first Premier League match in 2004 between Crystal Palace and Everton, and wore the international badge in 2006.
