Felix Brych won’t officiate the Egyptian Super Cup
The head of the refereeing committee, Essam Abdel-Fattah, has revealed that German referee Felix Brych will not officiate the Egyptian Super Cup match due to his high financial demands which was refused by the EFA.
“The German referee has asked for flight tickets, which cost around 400,000 EGP, and the EFA has declined his request,” Abdel-Fattah told Youth and Sports radio channel.
“We are now choosing between three names, Pavel Královec from Czech Republic, Damir Skomina from Slovenia and Milorad Mažić from Serbia, after receiving the acceptance of their federations.
“We don’t prefer Emirati referees to officiate the game. We understand the strong relations between Egypt and UAE, but it may put pressure on the referees.
“However, we may refer the game to the Emirati officials if we failed to reach an agreement with these three names. The announcement will be on Tuesday,” the 51-year-old concluded.
It’s worth mentioning that Cairo giants Al Ahly and Zamalek are set to challenge for the Egyptian Super Cup at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi next Friday Feb. 10.
