Age controversy[edit]

In 2012, Congolese club ES La Grace instructed a Brazilian sports lawyer Paulo Teixera to put forward a claim for training compensation to Anderlecht as the player was registered with the Congolese club in 2006. The player's registration from the time showed that the player was born on 8 August 1988, the player registered with a different date of birth 8 August 1994 with Anderlecht. The same date of birth was registered with FIFA for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. The player registered with a third date of birth (30 November 1991) for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign.[1]
