Indian Footballer Discovered to be Aged 28 – Suspended For Six Months After Pretending to be 16-year-old

Gourav Mukhi looked to have made history in the Indian Super League when he became their youngest goal scorer in October at the age of 16.

But the player has now been suspended for six months having been exposed as a fraud after it emerged he is actually 28 and not a teenager as listed on league documents.

The historical goal came when the Jamshedpur FC striker netted a crucial equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Bengaluru FC.

A failure to prove his age after questions were raised have seen his club registration revoked and six-month suspension put in place with immediate effect.

The All India Football Federation statement read: ‘All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee has imposed a six-month suspension on Jamshedpur FC player Gourav Mukhi with immediate effect.

“The AIFF Disciplinary Committee found the player Gourav Mukhi guilty on the basis of the evidence presented by him, his admissions and the statements of Manager of U-16 AIFF academy in 2015.

“The AIFF Disciplinary Committee also observed that the existing registration of Gourav Mukhi, both in the Central Registration System (CRS) as well as the Competition Management System (CMS) shall stand cancelled and revoked with immediate effect, with liberty upon the player/his appropriate club, to submit original valid appropriate documents for fresh registration under CRS and CMS.”

This is not the first time Mukhi has been caught out for giving out false information over his age.

Back in 2015, he was pulled up in a India U16 National Camp in for being too old to take part.
