Footballers With Silly Food-Based Names No. 314: Introducing Serie B Striker Kevin Lasagna

We usually do our best to steer clear of such infantile buffoonery, well, most of the time anyway. However, the uncovering of the magnificently-monikered Kevin Lasagna is, in our view, worthy of a mention. And to be honest, it’s not so much the ‘Lasagna’ as the rather surprising ‘Kevin’ which makes this such a cracker of a name.

The 22-year-old currently plies his trade in the second tier of Italian football with northern side Carpi. This chap has the sort of name a boozed-up UKIP goon would conjure up to lazily describe a local Italian immigrant – “All these…. Kevin…. Lasagna’s… coming over here…. stealing our jobs”.

Born in San Benedetto Po in Lombardy, Lasagna has netted once in 11 appearances for Serie B outfit Carpi since moving there in 2014. (Yes, I am padding this out)

Anyway, apparently Lasagna is a many-layered man.

    Come on Alan, that last pun was way too cheesy. I’ve seen him play before, he doesn’t need mush room to make mince meat out of his opponents.

    Sure he has a saucy attitude but I think Garfield the cat found his new new favorite player

    did they test him to see if he was full of horse meat?
