Thank you for reading the news about EFA reject Zamalek’s request for appointing foreign referees and now with the details
Dubai - Yasmine El Tohamy - The head of the Egyptian Football Association’s committee of referees, Gamal El-Ghandour, has turned down Zamalek’s request to call up foreign match officials for the team’s remaining games in the Egyptian Premier League games this season.
Zamalek had sent an official statement to the Egyptian FA (EFA) demanding the appointment of foreign referees in all of their remaining league games.
In their statement the Whites claimed that the refereeing committee, presided by El-Ghandour, is biased towards the team’s opponents as they suggested that referees are deliberately disallowing goals and not giving away clear penalties.
“Egyptian referees need time to regain confidence. We are building for the future in order to replace the veteran referees after three or four years,” El-Ghandour said on Friday.
“We have only 13 experienced referee that can take over any game in the league and this is not enough.”
“The EFA won’t bring foreign officials. We are working out an agreement to bring them only for Cairo derby games between Al Ahly and Zamalek.”
Zamalek defeated Aswan on Thursday evening with the goals of Mostafa Mohamed and Ahmed Sayed ‘Zizo’ to record their first win since December 12.
