Kumasi Asante Kotoko Football Club has announced the signing of a new player by the name of Dickson Afoakwa. According to Hitz FM on their social media pages, the new Kotoko player is a 23 years old footballer.
This has sparked lots of controversies on social media with the player and the team becoming a laughing stock. The player looks much older than the age given and many are wondering whether it is his real age or it was a mistake. Some have taken to poke the team Asante Kotoko of not doing much research about the player before signing him.
African players are known to reduce their ages just to get a team to play and this is what is termed as the "football age". This attitude has brought a bad reputation to African players all over the world. The question many are asking is that is he really 23 or it is his football age.
