Cameroonian player fired by football club for being HIV positive

30 August 2016, 09:15

Nairobi - A player has been fired by a football club in Egypt for being HIV positive.

Just four days after signing for Egyptian Premier League club Al Ittihad, 21-year-old Samuel Nlend has had his contract terminated by his new club after testing positive for AIDS.

Egyptian news outlet KingFut.com reported that a media representative of the club confirmed the news to the press.

The young forward has been capped five times by Cameroon, Transfermarket states scoring in January’s African Cup of Nations competition before securing a summer move to Al Ittihad.

According to Africatopsports, Nlend had signed a three year contract with Al Ittihad on the 24th August. Not quite a brilliant show of support from his new Egyptian club.

There are no rules against playing football with the condition but it’s unlikely Nlend would be able to get a work permit in another country.
