Former Arsenal fan favourite Kanu Nwankwo sparked a debate about his age, after the 40 year old showed age is nothing but a number with a hattrick against a team of former AC Milan players.

The Nigerian caused a scene at the start of the game when he stayed on the pitch at the start not knowing he was on the bench for a team of Arsenal Legends, made up of former stars.

However he rolled back the years to score three times against former AC Milan safe hands Dida, which according to Bob Wilson triggered a debate about his age.

According to former Arsenal player Bob Wilson who was on the bench for Arsenal Legend in the 4-2 win, Kanu’s real age has long been an issue between his teammates and same was rekindled today.

” We never used to be sure how old Kanu was. There’s a joke going on around the bench saying he’s 65 and others saying he is 28″ He said.

Putting all of those behind, Papillo like Kanu is fondly called said the game was fun since it was for a good cause.

” It”s all about having fun for a good cause. That said, I reckon I could score three goals”.
