Edson Arantes do Nascimento,... or maybe not

Saw this on the Transfers January 2009 section of the BBC Football website:

"Pele [Porto - Portsmouth] Loan"

Avoiding the oh-too-obvious 'isn't he a bit long in the tooth,... even for Portsmouth' gag; I would like to nominate the naming of this poor unfortunate footballer for the 'Making a rod for your own (or a close family member/friend's) back award 2009'.

Deed poll my little footballing fellow, deed poll.
