He freaked out. Ex-Indomitable Lions captain and Cameroon Football Association president Samuel Eto’o physically and verbally attacked a cameraman as he prepared to leave Stadium 974 shortly after Brazil’s victory.
The former FC Barcelona player, also a Fifa ambassador, was taking a few photos on the fly with onlookers when he suddenly got angry at a person who could be an Algerian YouTuber, Sadouni SM. “I didn’t understand what they were saying,” said Ricardo López Juárez, a journalist with La Opinión in Los Angeles who attended the scene, when interviewed by El Larguero. “I heard Eto’o exchanging words with the fan in an annoyed tone. He started chasing him uncontrollably. The fan took the camera and that’s where Eto’o makes the mistake. Instead of leaving, he kicks”.
