    Not sure if there's anyone with a worse name than QPR soccer player Danny ****tu.

    EDIT: Or German striker circa 1996, Stefan ****z.

    Horribly off-topic, but how weird must it be to be Fred in the Brazilian football team. When your team mates are all measures of -o's -a's and -inho's, and your name is just Fred.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Uwe Fuchs who used to play for Millwall and Boro runs him close IMO

    I remember each different commentator (i think it was Euro 96) would have their own pronounciation of his Surname, was amusing Anything but what it actually sounded like
