Dallas was appointed head of Greece’s Central Refereeing Committee (KED) in the close season after demands from Greek clubs for an external official to be brought in to combat the allegations of match-fixing, that have rocked the Greek game in recent seasons. However, he has requested to move roles following the attack on the assistant director of KED, Christoforos Zografos.
A KED spokesman confirmed he will “continue to be responsible for the education and training in both professional categories” and that they have accepted his request to no longer be responsible for referee appointments.
