As he multiplied the photos with the Brazilian supporters, Eto’o took on a young man with a camera. According to the video of the site The Los Angeles Opinion, the latter had previously made remarks – the content of which is not known – towards the Cameroonian. Reassembled, the former Barça striker multiplied the pressure, before delivering a violent kick, propelling the young videographer to the ground. In his latest Youtube video, Sadouni SM shows his broken camera.
A campaign of harassment that lasts
This surprising episode follows the qualifying play-offs for the World Cup between Algeria and Cameroon. The Fennecs, eliminated after an incredible extension (2-1 ap, 0-1 on the way), had strongly contested the arbitration of the Gambian Bakary Papa Gassama. The latter had denied two goals to Islam Slimani, the Algerian striker, and forgot two penalties.
“The referee took away the hope of a whole people and we leave him like that… I’m not saying he should be killed but he shouldn’t be left alone”
Djamel Belmadi, Fennecs coach since 2018, claimed in April 2022 : “We will never let a referee hurt our country again. I didn’t like seeing the referee the next day comfortably seated in our airport lounges drinking coffee and eating a mille-feuille. I emptied my bag and I ran into him again in Turkey and I told him who he was again! He took away the hope of a whole people and we leave him like that… I’m not saying he should be killed, but he shouldn’t be left alone. »
On social networks, Algerian supporters responded to the call of their coach, who, for his part, tried to temper his remarks. At the same time, this harassment shifted towards Samuel Eto’o, president of the Cameroonian Federation. During the World Cup draw ceremony, an Algerian videographer challenged the Cameroonian: “ Gasama. They bought the game against Algeria. They cheated Cameroon. ” Without answer. Until Monday evening and the bloodshed of the Cameroonian legend.
