Former Chelsea and Barcelona star player Samuel Eto’o was seen in a video attacking a cameraman outside the stadium.

Samuel Eto’o and Cameraman Clash in Qatar
Samuel Eto’o, who is now president of his country’s football federation (Fecafoot), posed for several pictures with supporters before getting into an angry altercation with another man with a video camera.
The footage showed Eto’o advancing towards the man before he was restrained by bystanders, but the 41-year-old then broke free and appeared to lash out towards the victim with his knee.
The four-time African Footballer of the Year is also an ambassador for Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, which is overseeing the organisation of the World Cup alongside the world governing body Fifa. Fecafoot and the Supreme Committee have been contacted for comment.
During his playing time, he scored, 56 goals in 118 games for Cameroon, and he was elected Facefoot president last December. He also had to play spells at Real Madrid, Mallorca, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Everton.
