Espanyol keeper Carlos Kameni threatens fan at training ground (allegedly)
Cameroon international grabs mouthy fan
The Official Espanyol Supporters Club is calling for goalkeeper Carlos Kameni to never play for the club again after he allegedly threatened a supporter during a training session. The Premier League transfer target is reported to have turned on a fan named David after being heckled during training. The fan is said to have approached Kameni and yelled at him not to bother renewing his contract with the club.
The precise nature of the player’s response is a little blurry, with some sources claiming he asked the fan if he wanted to die and others reporting that Kameni asked the fan whether he wanted him to die. Goal claims the 24-year-old grabbed the fan by his shirt and shouted: “What, you want to die? I am a professional. Respect my work. Respect me!”
The Espanyol supporters club was apparently unimpressed by Kameni’s attempts at writing new verses for Aretha Franklin songs. An official statement read: “We consider that he [Kameni] does not deserve to wear the shirt of Espanyol and we ask that the player be sanctioned with the highest possible punishment the club’s disciplinary code will allow.
“He has acted with aggression and therefore, the appropriate penalty must come into effect.”
No wonder Kameni thought they wanted him to die!
