President Roger Noah of Cameroon Elite One championship side, AS Fortuna has been caught on camera as he slapped UMS defender Francis Joel Tombi Alemi.
The incident occurred after the full time whistle of the match day 25 game played on Sunday in Loum.
The camera angles show the president as he approached the player and slaps him while making comments we couldn’t gather with the help of the videos.
In our attempt to get more on the very strange incident Kick442.com spoke with two players on Sunday evening. The players who pleaded anonymous recounted a similar story;
The players say Tombi was slapped for telling president Noah congratulations for the point he won away from home. In their words;
“Tombi approached him and told him congratulations president. He asked what for? And the player told him for the point away from home my president. Before the player knew it, Roger Noah slapped him. I appreciate Tombi’s decision not to retaliate and am sure it happened that way because he was on a spiritual fast” The player exclusively told kick442.com.
The act has led to widespread condemnation from football stakeholders within and without the country.
It is not the first time Noah is at the center of controversy this season.
He has been on the media crying foul on the quality of organization of the Cameroon League stating there is an organized campaign to have his club relegated. Having discovered this, why will this man in a glass house throw stones?
Late last year, he vowed to quit Cameroon football if officiating doesn’t improve.
Unfortunately our findings have it that the “violent president” owes his own players salaries for over three months.
AS Fortuna currently occupies the bottom spot in the 18 clubs Cameroon League one championship.
Noah’s show of shame took the brilliant football game off the spotlight. Both sides scoring twice to earn a point each in a game that finished two-all.
