Egyptian media sources, including the website Kingfut.com reported that Al Ittihad has decided to terminate the contract they signed with Cameroon football star, Samuel Nlend after Egyptian medics revealed the player had contracted the HIV virus that causes AIDS. This information that was also published by the Cameroon Concord News Group has provoked strong reactions of outrage on social networks, some invoking the disclosure of medical confidentiality.
It has emerged that the Egyptian football club launched the negative campaign against the player for lack of funds to pay Union Douala as stipulated by FIFA transfer rules and regulations. Samuel Nlend has been quoted recently by local Cameroon media houses as saying “I am not sick. I’m in good shape, I suffer from nothing.”
Correspondingly, his health report published by the Egyptian website mistakenly carried his nationality as Egypt instead of Cameroon. The AGBAW-EBAI DEBATE is asking our readers to make public their various take on this sad thing. Our question is: Should FIFA order an investigation into the Samuel Nlend issue?
