Is '32Yr-old' Nigerian striker really 48 years old?

Yakubu Aiyegbeni returned to England on a short spell to Reading. A Twitter handle bearing his name tweeted on his age, rejecting that he is 32.

Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s official football age is 32 and that has identified him since he started playing football.

A twitter handle parody bearing the name of the Edo state born footballer raised questions regarding the Yak’s real age.

The post from the handle, @Yakubu_24 read: 'Media reports saying me, Yakubu is 32. All lies . The Yak is 48. BUT Feed the Yak and he will score.'

Could Yakubu really be 42 and not the 32 his passport says he is?
