Cameroonians welcome Samuel Nlend who was sacked for being HIV-positive back home (photos)

Samuel Nlend, 21, is back in Cameroon, after being sacked by an Egyptian football club, Al Ittihad, for allegedly testing HIV positive during the club's standard medical test routine. 

The 21-year-old footballer's friends, teammates and fans came out in their numbers to welcome him back home. Cameroonians are reeling in anger and have called for the club to be sued for violating Samuel's right to privacy by making his HIV test results public. 

The SYNAFOC (Syndicat national des footballeurs camerounais) has even promised to take legal actions against the Egyptian club.


Nlend, is regarded as one of Cameroon’s brightest soccer prospects. He finished the last Cameroonian soccer league season as the top scorer with his former club, Union Douala. He also played and scored for the Cameroonian senior team at the African Nations Championship in Rwanda earlier this year.

Nlend's teamates are very happy to have him back and many have promised to give him all the moral support he needs to keep going in his career.

“We are happy to see our teammate in great shape because he is important for our team. We will put all of us together to work for good end of season. ”  Said David Eto’o

  1. Who will play against him after these results have been made known to the public? Football is a physical game with risks of injuries, You can't possibly play against a player you cannot tackle with confidence.

  4. Well to me I buy the idea he gets into a different business and save his energy. It is not the end of life if he follows the doctors advise he will be perfectly ok as never before.

  9. Why was his result shown out to the public? Medically is not suppose to be know by the public. Health result is btm the patient and the doctor. For his case it was suppose to be the doctor, team coach and the patient. In which they all are suppose to keep the result private. Chai this one na disgrace oooo

  14. Soccer bosses will not be friendly to our patriot and his former club must pay for releasing his confidential HIV Status. The stress of regular strenuous exercise causes the release of cortisol, an immunosuppressant, which may also not play favourably in the long run for somebody with HIV.
