Papa Gassama off to officiate Saudi league


The Gambia Football Federation GFF has accepted a request from the Saudi Football Federation for the use of top African and Gambian referee Papa Gassama.
The Saudis want Gassama to officiate crucial league matches from the 27 to the 29 January, and The Standard has understand that the referee has already flown to Jeddah for the assignment.

Since his world conquering performance at the World Cup and hat-trick of African best referee awards Gassama has been a hot cake for nations around the world which often ask the GFF for his service occasionally. Meanwhile, Gassama will fly straight to Nigeria from Jeddah to a normal African club competition assignment.
