AC Milan to Sue Ex-academy Star as he is 28... not 19!

AC Milan is taking former academy player Yusupha Yaffa to court following allegations he told the club he was nine years younger than his real age.

Yaffa arrived in Italy in 2009 seeking asylum from Gambia and, according to Gazetta dello Sport, lost his identity papers and claimed his age was 13, when his actual age is said to have been 22.

A move to the Milan academy followed in 2013 when he was presumed to be 16 years old with a birthday of December 31, 1997, but an investigation puts his real birthday as February 14, 1987.
