Samuel Eto’o is filmed ATTACKING a man outside World Cup stadium after watching Brazil’s win against South Korea… with Barcelona legend and current Cameroon FA president appearing to lose his temper before KNEEING cameraman in the face

  • Samuel Eto’o has been caught on camera attacking a man in Qatar on Monday 
  • The Cameroon FA president argued with a man who was filming him in car park 
  • He then chased after the man, before appearing to knee him in the face
  • It is unclear what sparked the disruption following Brazil’s win over South Korea

Shocking footage has emerged online of football legend and current Cameroon FA president Samuel Eto’o attacking a man outside a stadium at the World Cup in Qatar.

The incredible clip shows the former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea striker leaving Stadium 974 in Doha, having just watched Brazil romp to victory against South Korea in their round-of-16 match.

At first, Eto’o appears happy to pose for photos with waiting fans as he makes his way out of the venue, before a man with a video camera approaches him to his right.

The footage, filmed by La Opinion, then seemingly shows the pair exchanging words, before the video cuts to a few seconds later, and Eto’o returning to the scene to confront the man.

It is unclear what was said to rile Eto’o – who is in Qatar in his role as World Cup 2022 legacy ambassador – but he reacts furiously and begins to push the cameraman.

  2. I’m not to huge Eto’o fan but I don’t think he’s this irrational and violent. Dude, most have said something to set him off….all that said, that’s not a good look and I’m sure FIFA is going to have something to say about this

  3. The person insulted Eto’o and accused him of having corrupted the referee of the play-off match between Algeria and Cameroon which ended with the victory of Cameroon 1.2 in Algeria .understand the reason for his reaction b4 judging

  4. @mimba in the west were he earn his money as a footballer he will be charged for assault and lock up in prison, that’s a very stupid and irrational behavior for a person posing as a Cameroonian football official regardless of what any fans say to u

  5. Internet ,press,income earners aren’t allowed to spew false accusations and thus deeply insult people who work very hard every day to improve all aspects in football ,of which Eto is one of the very few real experts .To have complete strangers verbally attacking you so they can make money on the internet is crossing the line of normality .companies who make money on this should be heavily fined if they don’t take action ,in the countries where they are legally registered ,since they are sub supporting this negative activity .
