“Taribo West was 40 when he said he was 28′- ex-club president says

Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West, has been accused of lying about his age by one of his former club presidents. According to a report on Daily Mail, Taribo joined Serbian team Partizan Belgrade in 2002 after leaving Derby County and told club bosses he was 28. But now the former president of Partizan, Zarko Zecevic, has accused him of lying, saying the defender was actually 40.
"He joined us saying he was 28. We only later found out he was 40, but he was still playing well so I don’t regret having him on the team,' Zecevic said.
But according to the Croatian media, the former defender also lied when trying to join Croatia’s Rijeka club. At the age of 44, they said West told club doctors he was only 32.

It was only after an examination that the doctors raised suspicions with the club because West’s knees suggested he was older. He wasn’t signed to the team but later joined Plymouth and then Iranian side Paykan FC, where he ended his career at the age of 46 in 2008. Today his Wikipedia entry says he is 39.

Hahahahahahahahahaah, its obvious". What do u expect from a man who was opportuned to breakthrough at the age of 40? He can't let such opportunity slip away after waitng for so long to breakthrough. Blame it to poverty in Africa and bad leadership which has no plan for her youths

Lol... We all know this is so true! Football age thingz! Taribo can't even refute or deny such claims because we all know the 411 of age reducing in Nigeria. Smh!

Exactly this is what we all call civil service age! Ask your folks and thank me later! LoooooooooooL.
PC or what ever you call your confused self. Your father is a black man therefore you are a black man okay. Its so unfortunate ur mom was used for sham marriage years back and they produced the silly gay tin they regret today.#sad face#
I'm sure you can't even flow with your mates that are white,cos guess what? They don't see you as white! You are not like them and will never be like them.

You must be a young teen from the way you write. Your totally clueless about life and your future. You don't strike me as a wise person because if you were wise, you would have discovered that the Economy of the western world esp (your Europe) is crashing. Look at the tax level in the uk, the benefits they are gradually slashing. The NHS that is gradually getting fucked up(people staying on the waiting list for treatment) et all. Or why do you think they are trying to reduce immigration?
Little boy the Europe you brag about,is going down. Guess what silly ass lil boy? The Africa you look down on is rapidly expanding.
I'm sure you never follow up business news, all you watch is gay porn and play games. From today wake up and smell the coffee! Stop thinking you have money because of the £60 benefits your government gives weekly, and the tesco or asda job you do to be able to keep up. Wake up bcos that aint life or money!
Your teen mate like wizkid is going places and not depending on mommy n daddy.
You may insult me! I care not cos guess what? My shit are together okay! I work for no white man. Let the truth be said, its the other way round. So wake up PJ!

If he had declared his true age would they have signed him? Capital NO! Cheating in football age is not only restricted to Nigeria or even Africa, it happens in other Continent especially Asia and South America. A real 25 years old can not play at under 20 tournament and do you know why? Because we don't feed well whhich results to stunted growth. Look at kids in the city and compare them to the kids in the village with the same age group, you will discover that those kids in the city have rapid growth than their counterparts in the village and when you still compare our city kids to the one in UK, France, Spain, Belgium, Holland, etc you will notice a big disparity. Corruption is no longer news in Nigeria but, what is news is that those of you shouting corruption are even more corrupt than the ones you are accusing if given the same opportunity. If you doubt me do a sincere audit of your heart and tell yourself your findings. Taribo has not committed any offence which you guys have not committed. Let us go and check your Curriculum Vitae(CV) at your working place and see if it is your real age that you declared. Pot calling the Kettle black, eschews me make I go dance Awilo Logunba.
