CAF appoint Ghanaian referee Daniel Laryea for Gor Mahia-Zamalek clash

Ghanaian referee Daniel Laryea has been appointed by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) to officiate the crucial Confederation Cup Group D clash between Egyptian giants Zamalek and Gor Mahia at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria on Sunday.

This comes as Football Kenya Federation wrote to Caf complaining over the officiating in last Sunday's Caf Confederation Cup match between Gor Mahia and hosts Nasr Athlétique de Hussein Dey in Algiers.

In a letter sent to Caf dated March 4, 2019, FKF criticised the performance of centre referee Boubou Traore and sought clarification on why he disallowed Shafik Batambuze's 58th-minute goal from a Francis Kahata corner in the match that ended 1-0 in favour of Hussein Dey.

Against Zamalek, Laryea will be assisted by Nigeria's Abel Baba and Issa Yaya from Chad.

The 30-year-old has been in charge of several continental interclub competition matches before.

He also officiated at the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (Chan) tournament in Morocco
