10 of the Most Ridiculous Fake Pro Evolution Football Names of All Time

Remember when Pro Evo used to be better than FIFA? Remember that they didn't have a license so they used fake names to represent the players?


Well, you are in luck as here is a lowdown of the worst fake names from the video game...

10. Ronarid aka Ronaldo

​Ronaldo, or 'Fat Ronaldo' as he is unfortunately now known following Cristiano Ronaldo's rise to fame, was one of the deadliest strikers in the history of the game. On Pro Evo though, he was named Ronarid, a far cry from the famous name he was handed at birth.

9. Ryan Greggs aka Ryan Giggs

​Sounding more like a worker at your local low cost bakery chain, Ryan Greggs was one of the most effective left wingers at your disposal, but it was hard to not laugh at the name handed to him by the video game executives.

8. Facu aka Cafu

​In what looks more like a typo than anything else, legendary Brazilian full back Cafu saw his name given a reshuffling for the football video. The former AC Milan and Roma defender remains Brazil's most capped player of all time.

7. Fank de Mole aka Frank de Boer

​This is a really atrocious attempt. The long serving Ajax manager, who is best known in his playing days for spells at Barcelona and Rangers, was named Fank de Mole, to make him sound like he is grateful for a freckle.

6. Samuel Dalla Boner aka Samuele Dalla Bona

​How this one got given the green light we will never know. The former Chelsea flop saw his surname altered slightly to give it a hilarious new twist, but this will be one of the only things the Italian will be remembered for due to his poor footballing exploits.

5. Juan Sebastian Revon aka Juan Sebastian Veron

​Another reshuffling of a name made iconic Argentinian international midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron sound more like a hair product on the Pro Evolution Soccer games, with the former SS Lazio, Manchester United and Chelsea man labelled as 'Juan Sebastian Revon'.

4. Michael Kruger aka Michael Ballack

​This one made no sense whatsoever. The one time German playmaker was named Michael Kruger on Pro Evo, which left fans scratching their heads as to why the former Bayern Munich and Chelsea man got given such a title.

3. Ruud vom Mistelroum aka Ruud van Nistelrooy

​You can just picture the Pro Evo development team having a good old laugh when they settled on Ruud van Nistelrooy's fake identity. To be fair though it is hard enough to spell the former goalscoring machine's name at the best of times.

2. Neil Lemon aka Neil Lennon

​Former Celtic and Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon drew the unlucky straw with his avatar on the Pro Evo Soccer game named after the sour citrus fruit. Not that the Northern Irishman would have cared so much one would expect.

1. Roberto Larcos aka Roberto Carlos

​One of the most iconic footballers of the last 20 years, Roberto Carlos' identity became totally different when just two letters of his surname switched places.At least the Brazilian full back could share company with Facu and Ronarid in the national team though.
