Cameroonian international football player, Njie Clinton has begged to be forgiven after last year’s sexual misconduct.
In a release on September 12, Njie admitted he was drunk when he mistakenly posted on Snapchat a video of himself having sex.
Thousands of followers had already viewed the video before it was taken off.
“I am sorry, I had drunk too much… I celebrated my new contract and wanted to read the news. I pressed the wrong button,” said Clinton Njie.
Clinton Njie also recorded another misconduct in 2018 when he allegedly spent time with two female friends in his hotel room while on international duty.
He then turned up on a later day than expected ahead of a friendly clash between his Cameroonian side and Burkina Faso, according to reports.
The two scandals have not left the player’s professional integrity unstained as he lamented: “I deeply regret this sad episode in my life that I neither wished for nor enjoyed and which greatly affected me, my loved ones and my family,” he said.
He added: “Since the onset of this unfortunate moment, I have been looking for the best way to express my apologies to anyone who has been hurt or outraged.”
Although the player has failed to be selected in Cameronon’s newly-named 32-man preliminary squad ahead of a friendly against Japan in the Netherlands next month, Clinton Njie still holds his country at heart.
“I would therefore like, by speaking today, to express to all the Cameroonian people, to the Government, in particular the Ministry of Sports; to the officials of the Cameroonian Football Federation, to the technical staff of the Indomitable Lions and all my teammates. My apologies and my desolation for any inconvenience or indignation this may have aroused,” he said in his recent statement.
Clinton Njie played for Russian side Dynamo Moscow during the 2019/2020 Russian Premier League football season, during which he played fifteen times, scoring one goal.
Dynamo Moscow bought him over from Olympique Marseille at $6 million after he spent two seasons with the club.
Njie has scored nine goals for Cameroon since 2014 in his 32 caps with the Indomitable Lions.
He played with the Indomitable Lions at the 2015 and 2019 African Nations Cups, and during the 2017 edition which Cameroon won the trophy in Gabon.
