Radamel Falcao's Wikipedia page edited by pranksters

Liverpool striker target Radamel Falcao briefly played for Liverpool, scoring 16 goals in zero games according to his Wikipedia page.

The peer-edited online encyclopaedia is often good for a laugh, and it didn't disappoint last night after Twitter light up with screenshots of Radamel Falcao's player page.

One prankster had changed Falcao's club history, as seen above, to claim the Colombian international had signed for Liverpool. And judging by his goal record at Anfield, he's in lethal form.

Top goal record

Over the course of a few minutes his goal record changed from 16 goals in 0 match to 9,001 goals in 1 game. Decent return from the Monaco hit man.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is in fact interested in signing Falcao, who is reportedly unsettled in France following the departure of compatriot James Rodriguez.

The Anfield manager has admitted that he's looking for a 'top level' addition to his strike force, although he's willing to be patient as the transfer window enters its final two weeks.

In their opening game of the Premier League season against Southampton, the Reds laboured to a 2-1 win at Anfield. They missed the creativity and offensive ability of Luis Suarez, and Rodgers is reportedly looking at Falcao and Paris Saint Germain forward Edinson Cavani.

Liverpool targets

The two forwards are among the best in Europe, but their price tags reflect that - each would likely cost in excess of £50m. Liverpool have the money after the sale of Luis Suarez, but wages may be an issue. Falcao is looking for around £200,000-a-week.

Back to Wikipedia, and Falcao is not the first footballer to fall victim to pranksters on the site. Les Ferdinand was said to run his own theme park called 'Les Ferdi-Land' earlier this year while Ezequiel Garay was briefly a Manchester United player before completing his move to Zenit according to the online platform.
