Samuel Eto’o, president of the Cameroonian Football Federation and Qatar 22 ambassador lost his cool and assaulted a man outside the 947 stadium last night.
The victim, who is an Algerian YouTuber questioned Eto’o about Gassama, referee of the world cup qualifying match between Algeria and Cameroon.
Footage of the incident, which took place after Brazil’s round of 16 4-1 victory over South Korea was shared on social media. It is unclear what started the behaviour, with the attack coming just seconds after Eto’o appeared happy to pose for photos with fans.
Minutes later, Samuel Eto’o responds violently to an Algerian YouTuber after 9 months of harassment on social networks with his fellow YouTubers because of the Algeria-Cameroon match.
According to our sources, the victim would have made racist and abusive remarks towards the president.
Former Chelsea and Barcelona striker; Eto’o, who finished his playing career in Qatar before retiring in 2019, is the current president of the Cameroon Football Federation. The 41-year-old former striker, who won the Champions League with Barcelona and Inter Milan, has been in Qatar as a global legacy ambassador for FIFA.
