Diatta Badara has been appointed the center referee for Berekum Chelsea’s Caf Champions League match against Zamalek this weekend.
The Senegal referee will be assisted by compatriot Djribril Camara and Felicien Kabanda in the game which will be played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
Badara returns to Ghana in a space of five weeks after taking charge of Ghana’s thrashing of Lesotho in the opening 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
He was also responsible for the sending off of John Mensah during the Black Stars’ opening 2012 Nations Cup win over Botswana.
Chelsea will however hope to have similar luck of victory with the lanky referee in charge when they play their first home game in the group stage of Africa’s flagship competition.
The officials are expected in town latest by Friday in time for the Saturday afternoon kickoff of which the time is yet to be confirmed.
