The incident happened on Monday night after the match between Brazil and South Korea and fans have taken to their social media to voice their opinions

A video has been trending online capturing Fecafoot president Samuel Eto'o kicking a man outside a stadium in Qatar.

The Cameroon legend is seen taking selfies with some fans after Brazil's 4-1 win over South Korea in the World Cup's Round of 16 game played on Monday night at the 974 Stadium.

A man emerges with a camera and seemingly confronts Eto'o and utters something that might have provoked the former striker.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan star then surges towards the man and knees him to the ground as seen in the footage.

No finer details have been communicated on what exactly transpired, but many fans have had their say about the incident.

    Eto'o is human

    If you have not been falsely accused at the detriment of your reputation before, then don’t comment here. I know a man like Eto’o should be used to letting things go as a household name, but then, you don’t know what was going on in his mind at that time. He’s human after all - Richardson
