Mukoko, age manipulation controversy resurfaced… “Reduced by 4 years after adoption”

Correspondent Yu Ju-jeong, London] Controversy over the manipulation of the age of German Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund striker Yoo Supa Mukoko has risen again. Mukoko is receiving interest from several clubs in the transfer market, including Chelsea and Newcastle United of the English Premier League (EPL).

On the 10th local time, German media RTL News shed light on Mukoko’s age controversy again. The core of the controversy is that he was actually born in 2000, not in 2004, as has always been known. The controversy escalated when it was revealed that Mukoko’s father, who had defended him by claiming ‘birth records’, was not his biological father.

In 2017, Mukoko was also plagued by controversy over her age. Suspicion continued with the analysis that “she has physical abilities that do not match her age” toward Mukoko, who showed outstanding performance in the youth league at the time.

Controversy over age manipulation, which often arises among African players, also contributed to the suspicion surrounding Mukoko. Mukoko was born in Cameroon and moved to Germany in 2014.

At the time, Mukoko’s father pushed through his birth certificate, claiming that he “was registered at the German embassy in Cameroon as soon as he was born.”

Despite the controversy, Mukoko broke the Bundesliga’s ‘youngest’ record one by one. He set new records in several fields, including the youngest appearance and youngest score.

In the midst of this, RTL recalled the part where Mukoko’s father revealed to another German media, Der Spiegel last year, “In fact, Mukoko is an adopted child.” At the same time as her adoption, it became known that she had taken over Mukoko’s passport, reigniting the controversy over her age.

RTL also pointed out that when Mukoko was 12, she was dating a girlfriend who was 6 years older than her. On the other hand, it is said that her girlfriend, whom she met when Mukoko was 16, was 23 years old. 안전놀이터

The controversy escalated when her father, who later turned against Mukoko, tipped off her birth certificate with ‘July 17, 2000’ to the media. According to RTL, it was a German court that prevented the document from being released at the time. Der Spiegel raised the suspicion that “document manipulation is easy in Cameroon.”

RTL’s report ends with the sentence “Mukoko’s real age remains a mystery.” Questions still linger among fans.
