    Quintana

    Thereís a lot of discussions regarding NQ on social media and a US based Forum that he seems to be a spent force after showing so much promise....the reason?.....Heís actually older than his ďofficialĒ age 28 years!?(he does look about 45)Apparently itís quite common in SA for births not to be registered and Sportspeople just give an estimated date of birth when they need a passport to travel abroad.Rife in US Baseball according to some.
    He does look craggy and old but some are suggesting heís Valverdes age?!
    Possible I suppose?

    This was on a Mainly US Forum.Apparently it's rife in US Baseball and also common in African Football.There were claims an African player who Lazio signed at 17.....was actually 41
    In April 2013, nine players were excluded from the African Under-17 Championship in Morocco after MRI wrist scans showed them to be over the age limit.
    Apparently Baseball players can get away with it as player can play into their 40s anyway but players from SA do it to prolong their top earning power.
    As I said Quintana does look much older than his claimed age so anything is possible?

    When we used to arrest the little Vietaminese people growing cannabis in a large house, they keep telling us they were kids (under 18) and we ended up getting professors in bone and body dynamics to age them for us.

    The little fookes then left the Country when we released them on bail, never to be seen again.
