The Portuguese side, FC Porto is set to sack their defender, Chancel Mbemba for age cheating.

An investigation by the club brought to light that the former Newcastle United star has four different birth dates.

Mbemba bears different birth dates at dissimilar clubs and his country.

Contradictingly, Mbemba is 27 on paper, whereas other current document reveals he is beyond the claimed age with nothing less than six years.
