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.
