But according to Far Post, the shocking video was just a joke by the West African in response to people’s belief that he looks older than his age.
Tignyemb has also been in the media recently after he attacked his former coach at Chippa Norman Mapeza in a series of posts on Instagram.
The goalie criticized the Zimbabwean’s conduct and training methods and also claimed that the gaffer made the players ‘run like headless chickens.’
