FIGC confirm Minala is 17

The FIGC have confirmed that Lazio midfielder Joseph Minala is 17, and not 42-years-old.

The Biancoclesti man was part of a Federal Prosecutor’s case last season that saw the teenager questioned over his real age.

There had been allegations that the Cameroonian’s passport had been altered to take a full 25 years of his actual birth date.

But after a thorough investigation by the League authorities, they have confirmed that there is no case to be answered.

“The Federal Prosecutor has examined the report and ordered the investigation to be closed,” a statement read.
