The legendary former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker appeared to lose his temper with a fan in Qatar.
Samuel Eto’o was filmed in a nasty brawl outside Stadium 974 in Doha on Monday, allegedly kicking an unnamed man to the ground.
The Cameroon football federation president stopped to pose for selfies with fans after Brazil’s 4-1 victory against South Korea in the last 16 of the World Cup before a man with a camera approached him.
In footage obtained from Spanish outlet La Opinión, Eto’o appeared to react angrily to something the man said. His entourage initially held back, before he seemingly aimed a kick at the man, who then fell to the ground.
La Opinión added Eto’o couldn’t explain his actions afterward, and that there were no police officers present. The 41-year-old’s entourage promptly led him away from the scene.
As for the man who Eto’o allegedly assaulted, he has made no comment on the incident so far.
