Lithuanian Club Duped Into Signing Player After Seeing Fake Wikipedia Profile

It's often said to never believe what Wikipedia says and that statement rang true for Lithuanian side FK Panevėžys, who signed a player based on his profile on the website, despite it being completely fabricated.

They announced the signing of Barkley Miguel Panzo and going off their statement on their official website, think it's a bit of a marquee signing.

Panzo is a real footballer, in fact he is verified on Instagram, but a lot of the stats and information on his Wikipedia profile are not and it's led to him getting his next career move.

Not only is he listed as an Angola international, his page also states that he played for QPR in the Championship between 2010 and 2012, scoring 45 goals in 36 games. Of course, it never happened.

He did however turn out for Non-League Woking, but one would think that FK Panevėžys won't have been too impressed by that.

Don't be surprised if FK find out Panzo isn't as good as his Wiki page says and he gets released. Move over Ali Dia, there's another football fraud in town.
