Pele, Maradona and Beckham playing together?

NON-league English football club Farnborough will have superstars David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Lionel Messi, Pele and Maradona in its line-up this season.

Well, in way that is true after the Farnborough players legally changed their names by deed poll with icons who played in their respective positions.

Manager Spencer Day has also gone through the makeover - he is now known as Jose Mourinho.

The move comes as part of a unusual sponsorship agreement with betting company Paddy Power, known for their innovative PR, to save the club going bust.
