Although he looks much older than 17, Cameroonian footballer, Joseph Minala’s documents show that he is indeed 17. Joseph who plays for Lazio, had to shut down his social media accounts following abuse over his age.
The internet was awash with pictures of the teenage midfielder with everyone staggered that he was just 17. The online uproar over Minala’s birth date on his passport seems to have really got to the poor guy after he closed down his social media accounts.
The Cameroonian has now blocked photos on his Instagram account, deleted his Facebook profile and filtered out Twitter pictures of himself.
