Gambian footballer has been charged to court for falsification of age by former club AC Milan.
Yaffa is said to have claimed he was born on December 31, 1996 when in actual sense he was born on 14 November 1987.
The footballer who played for AC Milan’s U19 side had doctored his Facebook account but his old school mates discovered the fraud and started talking about it. This discovery prompted an inquiry.
The MSV Duisburg player have claimed to have lost his documents several times. This is a trick used by immigrants to rejuvenate.
The judge has however postponed  hearing of the case till 21 April but the defense lawyer, Mauro Cavalli, has requested the transfer of the trial before the court of minors in Turin claiming that “at the time of the commission of the alleged offense the defendant is under age.”
Yusupha Yaffa pleads not guilty to the charge which has his former coach Filippo Inzaghi and CEOs of Milan, Adriano Galliani and Barbara Berlusconi, as witnesses.

Recall that in January 2015 Yaffa was arrested after being accused of raping a girl.
