Samuel Eto’o discloses reason for attacking a YouTuber, apologises for over reacting
The Cameroon Football Federation is presently led by legendary soccer player Samuel Eto’o.
On Monday, Samuel Eto’o, the president of the Cameroon Football Federation, was photographed getting into a “violent confrontation” with a supporter after Brazil’s 2022 World Cup match against South Korea.
During the World Cup in Qatar, a viral video purported to show Eto’o, 41, kneeing a spectator in the face.
After Brazil’s 4-1 round-of-16 victory against South Korea, the incident took place outside Stadium 974 in Doha.
Eto’o acknowledged the incident in a message sent to his social media sites on Tuesday. “On December 5, following the Brazil vs. South Korea game, I got into a nasty fight with a person who was possibly an Algerian supporter,” it said.
“I really apologize for losing my cool and acting in a manner that was out of character for me. I apologize for this unfortunate incident to the general public.
“I pledge to continue to resist the relentless provocation and daily harassment of some Algerian supporters. Indeed, since the Cameroon-Algeria match on 29 March in Bilda, I have been the target of insults and allegations of cheating without any evidence.
“During this World Cup, Cameroonian fans have been harassed and pestered by Algerians on the same subject.
“I would like to mention that the scenario of Algeria’s defeat was cruel but perfectly in line with the rules and ethics of our sport.
“All the appeals made by the Algerian Football Federation to the competent jurisdictions have been rejected.
“I therefore call on the Algerian authorities and Federation to take their responsibilities to put an end to this unhealthy climate before a more serious tragedy occurs.
“To Fennecs’ (Cameroonian) fans, I wish that they find peace and manage to overcome the disappointment of a painful defeat, now behind us.”
