Samuel Eto’o, former player now president of the Cameroon Football Federation, was seen molesting a youtubeur on the sidelines of the World Cup being held in Qatar, after he insulted him.
A video showing former Cameroonian football star Samuel Eto’o kneeling an Algerian YouTuber in the face went viral on social media on December 6. The images show the current president of the Cameroonian Football Federation (Fécafoot) sharply hitting a cameraman, who fell backwards, identified as Sadouni SM, 66,000 subscribers on YouTube, in the face.
Eto’o was surrounded by several people who could not hold him back despite their efforts. The scene takes place at stadium 974, the one with the containers, recognizable in the images, at the exit of the 1/8 finals Brazil-South Korea (4-1), on the evening of December 5. We also see Brazilian supporters in yellow jerseys.
At the start of the 57-second video, Eto’o, in a blue cap, takes selfies with fans before being challenged by the youtuber, whose question we can’t see, but who we can clearly hear pronouncing “Gassama! Gasama!”
“I did all that for Algeria”, explains the youtubeur
The man with the camera evokes the Gambian referee Bakary Gassama, who officiated during the Algeria-Cameroon return barrage (1-2 ap), who qualified the “Indomitable Lions” for this World Cup to the detriment of the “Greens” . After the elimination, many rumors in Algeria suspected the referee to have been bought.
“I did all that for Algeria,” Sadouni SM only explained on December 6 in a video facing the camera. “I am at the police station for the investigation. We must share this video, as Eto’o is a personality I am afraid that they will cover up the file, but I trust the Qatari police”, continued the youtubeur in this video. Eto’o ‘destroyed my camera and my microphone, he hit me there [montrant son menton]“, he said.
A Fécafoot official told AFP on the morning of December 6 that the latter did not wish to react. Samuel Eto’o is also an ambassador for the Qatari World Cup organizing committee.
