Former Cameroonian and Barcelona forward, Samuel Eto’o, has apologized for physically assaulting a man at the World Cup on Monday. In a declaration on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, the FUCAFOOT president said he was provoked by a fan who was “probably” an Algeria supporter as part of ongoing harassment following Cameroon’s qualifying win over Algeria in March.
“After the Brazil-South Korea match, I had a violent altercation with a person who was most likely an Algerian supporter.
“I would like to apologize for losing my temper and reacting in a way that does not match my personality. I apologize to the public for this unfortunate incident.”
