Fans create Reddit thread of the funniest footballers' names in history

Football is the most popular sport in the world.

It’s played in every corner of the globe and provides employment for millions of people.

The sheer volume of professional players is immense and with that volume comes some absolutely hilarious names.

Ex-Germany striker Stefan Kuntz was one of the most famous instances of having a rather unfortunate name – when spoken in English at least.

But football fans on a Reddit thread have provided some more and believe us when we say this – they’re pure gold.

We’ve scoured through the comments and picked out the funniest and don’t worry, they are all real.


Kevin Lasagna – Udinese

Climax Lawrence – FC Bardez

Danny Invincible – Retired

Argel Fucks – Retired

Fabian Assman – Independiente

Franklin Daddys Boy Nyentue – Rosenborg (yes, this is real, you view his player profile HERE)

Can Tuna – LL Hannover

Danger Fourpence – Kiglon Bird FC

Norman Conquest – Retired

Bonke Innocent – Malmo

Jizz Hornkamp – Den Bosch

Creedence Clearwater Couto – Santa Cruz

Nortei Nortey – Chorley FC

Marx Lenin – Flamengo (his parents must have been huge fans of the Russian Revolution)

Lorenzo Dickmann – Chievo Verona

Ralf Minge – Retired

Gianluca Cum – Udinese

Jazzi Barnum-Bobb – Wrexham

Phil Younghusband – Retired

Butholezwe Ncube – AmaZulu FC

Efmamjjasond Gonzalez – San Lorenzo (no, we didn’t fall asleep on the keyboard)

So, so good.

But there is simply no better name in the history of football than Daddys Boy Nyentue.

Imagine Martin Tyler screaming ‘Daddy Boy Nyentueeeeeeeeeeee!!!!’ on a Super Sunday as the Norwegian striker wheels away in celebration.

We need a Premier League club to snap up the 19-year-old as soon as possible, just for the comedic value.
