Gourav Mukhi who came off the bench to score the first goal for Jamshedpur FC in their Indian Super League encounter against Bengaluru FC has fallen into controversy with the AIFF regarding his age.
Mukhi´s equalizer in the 80th minute against Bengaluru supposedly made him the youngest player in the Indian Super League to have scored a goal. But according to media reports, his record says otherwise. Saurav Mukhi was also among the five players who were found over-aged in the Sub-Junior National Football tournament winning Jharkhand U15 squad for which they were later stripped off the title.
Gaurav Mukhi who has once again faced an allegation of age fraud in the Indian Super League has now submitted documents to the CRS system to prove that he is infact 16 years old. The AIFF has stated, “The CRS which registers in-detailed information of every single player for AIFF was not implemented for the National Championships and the State Associations in 2015, but later. The discrepancy in the DOBs will be referred to the relevant committee for further appropriate action.”
AIFF general secretary Kushal Das stated, "The discrepancy is regarding his passport which shows that he is 2002 born and a statement he issued in 2015 which stated that he is 1999 born." He further added, " We will pass on the matter to the relevant committees - the players status committee first or the disciplinary committee to look into the discrepancy regarding his age.”
