A highly rated prospect in the Nigeria Premier League who plays for one of the teams leading the Nigeria Professional Football League, has being branded an age cheat by a highly respected football agent.
The forward who only recently turned professional one year ago, has been on the radar of the agent for a while, as a matter of fact long before his present breakthrough with a top team in the Nigeria League.
” I have this striker that have been monitoring for a year. When I first saw him I was told he is 19, later I got his passport and he was truly that age but should be 20 in few months time”, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Few months later, an agent in Nigeria proposed him to me with a different passport from the first and a new age that he will turn 19 at the end of last year.
” As if that was not enough, I recently discovered from my sources at the office of the League Management Company (LMC) that he is registers as a soon to be 18 years old, how sad?”.
