The resignation comes after criticism from the president of the Zamalek club, Mortada Mansour, on Zamalek's own TV channel.

Clattenburg, who took charge of the Euro 2016 final and the Champions League final in 2016, had only been in the role for five months.

The reasons for his resignation are currently unclear.
