Algerian YouTuber Said Mamouni says he's reported Eto'o to local police

Algerian YouTuber Said Mamouni claims he is the man who was attacked by Samuel Eto'o and has reported the ex-footballer to police.

The ex-Barcelona and Chelsea striker was caught on camera attacking a man as he filmed him while he left Stadium 974 in Doha where Brazil had just beaten South Korea 4-1 yesterday.

Today the man was named in Spain as Said Mamouni, a YouTuber with more than 66,000 subscribers. A video emerged of the North African showing off his injuries and broken camera.

Spanish press reported that Mamouni is claiming Cameroon Football Federation president Eto'o lost his temper after he asked him about referee Bakary Papa Gassama, and whether Eto'o had given him a bribe before Cameroon's playoff victory over Algeria in March, granting his team a place in the World Cup.
