Samuel Nlend signed a three-year deal with the Egyptian side but stayed for only four days before being shown the door. Egyptian Premier League side Al Ittihad has terminated their contract with Cameroon star Samuel Nlend after the player tested positive for AIDS. Nlend signed a three-year deal with the Egyptian side on August 24 but stayed for only four days before being shown the door on grounds of being ‘sick’.
This unfamiliar happening was reported by the country’s media Kingfut.com, a thing which has seen the 21-year old striker being rendered jobless despite his bright football history. He has been capped five times by Cameroon, scoring in January’s African Cup of Nations competition. Al Ittihad finished last season’s league at position 14 out of 18 teams with 39 points.
