Nigerian player accused of age cheating in Azerbaijan – Reports
The footballing career of Nigerian player Victor Emenayo, who plays for Azerbaijan’s Shahdagh Qusar FK, is on the line after he was reportedly accused of ‘falsifying’ his age.
Emenayo’s claims that he is 23, and photos of his passport circulating online shows that he was born in 1993, but the Azerbaijan Football Federation is currently investigating his case after some discrepancies showed that his real age is 28, according to media outlets in Azerbaijan.
Several media outlets claimed that the player, who joined Azerbaijani top division side Shahdagh Qusar this summer, is even older than the club’s coach and that he is above 40.
The former Uganda side SC Villa’s striker is currently the center of attention of Azerbaijani media with some of them exposing evidence of his “real” age, while other outlets are suggesting he might be suffering from a medical condition that makes people look older than they actually are.
In August, 26 members of Nigeria’s Under-17 side failed an age test carried out ahead of their Cup of Nations U17 qualifying match against Niger.
