Samuel Eto'o

Samuel Eto'o, President of Cameroon Football Federation has issued an apology to a man he refered to as an 'Algerian' supporter after the Brazil-South Korea match in Qatar.

In a video surfacing on Tuesday, Eto'o was seen in a violent altercation with a man holding a camera.

According to report, the man has reported Eto'o to the Qatari police but on Wednesday, Eto'o issued an apology to man with explanation to his actions.

His statement on his Twitter page reads "On last 5 December, after the Brazil-South Korea match, I had a violent altercation with a person who was probably an Algerian supporter.

"I would like to apologise for losing my temper and reacting in a way that does not match my personality.

"I apologise to the public for this unfortunate incident.

"I pledge to continue to resist the relentless provocation and daily harassment of some Algerian supporters.

"Indeed, since the Cameroon-Algeria match on 29' March in Blida, I have been the target of insults and allegations of cheating without any evidence.

"During this World Cup, Cameroonian fans have been harassed and pestered by Algerians on the same subject.

"I would like to mention that the scenario of Algeria's defeat was cruel but perfectly in line with the rules and ethics of our sport.

"All the appeals made by the Algerian Football Federation to the competent jurisdictions have been rejected.

"I therefore call on the Algerian authorities and Federation to take their responsibilities to put an end to this unhealthy climate before a more serious tragedy occurs.

"To Fennecs' fans, I wish that they find peace and manage to overcome the disappointment of a painful defeat, now behind us."
