23-year-old Nigerian striker, Victor Emenayo who was recently signed by Azerbaijani top division side, Shahdagh Qusar FK, has been turned to an object of mockery for reportedly being 17 times older than the age that is on his international passport.
According to a report by Vanguard newspaper, the international passport alleges that the player who has already made his debut for his new side, was born in 1993, but search on the internet about the striker who has played in Uganda for the best part of his career shows, he should be 28-years-old judging by his official age before his move to Shahdagh Qusar.
The shocking revelation instantly turned the Nigerian player to a subject of ridicule by social media users in Azerbaijan with online users also joining in, due to the discrepancies in the documents about the age of the player, stating that he indeed looks well above 40 years old.
It was gathered from online sources that the striker is reportedly older in appearance than the coach of the team, Adil Mahmudov, according to the media in Azerbaijan.
The Nigerian or his club are yet to respond to the allegations.
