Top 15 Funniest Names In Football by cheapgoals(m): 6:04pm On Feb 26, 2018
Once in a while in life, you have to be content with your lot. I for one, am definitely happy with the name given to me, but some of these footballers unquestionably have justification to file a child abuse case. I assume it has given them a tad of fame if nothing else.

This is surely true in the world of funny football names. CheapGoals compiled a list of the 15 funny-named footballers, it’s neither big nor clever to laugh at funny names but nevertheless remains stubbornly amusing.

Take a look and see if one of these tickles your funny bone. Or, perhaps, one will motivate you to concoct your very own name.

Daley Blind

Dutch and Man Utd defender Daley Blind is nothing compared with his name as he has struggled hard to a secure a starting line-up under Jose Mourinho. This is a direct result of his immeasurable foresight to defend against average opponents. is he technically blind?

Danny Drinkwater

The Premier League introduced drinks breaks in 2015, and the Internet couldn’t get enough of this exceptionally thirsty Chelsea player. Thinking of getting a fitness trainer? it’s this midfielder, he reminds us all to keep hydrated.

Fabian Assman

This Argentine goalkeeper prefers his first name Fabian, his name is very apt and to be fair, everyone has their own sexual preference, right?

Forget Jesus Christ, Bongo Christ is the new name on the block. The Congolese striker played for a host of clubs including Hannover 96 and SV Wilhelmshaven. When next you’re scared just say the name ‘Bongo’.

Rat

Răzvan Dincă Raț is a Romanian footballer who plays for Spanish club Rayo Vallecano as a left back. He doesn’t move like a rodent, nor have a keen sense of smell to sniff dirty kits, don’t know why he is called that.

John Dick

Johnny, Don’t be a dick! Well, this is extraordinarily amusing, John played more than 250 games for Arsenal during the mid 1900 ‘s. In an extremely well-known article, a daily newspaper in London printed the headline saying “ARSENAL TO PLAY TOMORROW WITH DICKS OUT“. As hilarious as it might sound, it went ahead to be a huge joke, which wasn’t forgotten for a long time!

Norman Conquest

Not just a critical bit of historical significance, Norman Conquest was also an Australian goalkeeper who played in the late 1940s. He would most likely be a name yearned for by few explorers in the present era and the first owner was posthumously inducted into Australia’s Hall of Fame. However, the goalkeeper did not attempt to invade England

Mahatma Gandhi Pires

This Brazilian footballer is not something out of the ordinary in a country where the game is worshipped. So what’s the big deal about him? You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Danger Fourpence

Fourpence is a Zimbabwean player who plays for Kiglon Bird FC. He really does sound like a character from one of James Bond film: “The game is up Fourpence” (If you didn’t say that in Sean Connery’s voice then you are not my friend, Unfortunately, he is better known for his funny name rather than his footballing abilities. Fourpence gets an extra bonus for being the best named among a team of staggering funny names.

Here are some of the funny names that featured in Fourpence’s team:

Cunning Muzuva, Raymond Undi, Blessing Makunike, Marvel Samaneka, Heavens Chinyama, Givemore Manuella, Gift Makolonio, Method Mwanyazi, Limited Chicafa and Zambian Laughter Chilembe.

Have-A-Look-Dube

He played for the Njube Sundowns in Zimbabwe, excessively few parents would take the opportunity to get hyphens involved with their child’s name. Unless my pronunciation is off track, this must be the most tragic collaboration of names at any point concocted. No pictorial representation for this player. please, Have-A-Look at the next one

Johnny Mustache

Relax, this player is not a character from the early 90’s American crime film ‘Goodfellas’ but rather he is the former captain of the Seychelles national team. According to reports, he is considered as a legend of the East Africa country and I believe it’s not a direct result of his name.

Ars Bandeet

As far as anyone knows, Bandeet is an Algerian footballer in the 1970s, there is by all accounts thin confirmation of his existence but was certainly included in any case. The two name choices are controversial and possibly that is the reason we are discussing them instead of discussing football abilities.

Buzzing around, and irritating opposition defenders… yep, I guess that’ll work. But whoever decided that this Brazilian Footballer should be known by such name is both heartless and an absolute genius.

As far as anyone knows, Buhari is a Nigerian footballer in the 1970s, there is by all accounts thin confirmation of his existence but was certainly included in any case. The two name choices are controversial and confusing that is the reason we are having problem in the country.
