Messi, Pele and Maradona To Play For Farnborough FC

There's been a lot of change at non-league side Farnborough FC recently. Formed after the liquidation of Farnborough Town FC in 2007, the club has entered a much needed sponsorship deal with Paddy Power that has meant changing the name of their ground, updating their kit and legally changing the names of their players and manager by deed poll.

So in the coming season, Farnborough's opponents in the Skrill South league will face a team that includes Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, Pele and Franz Beckenbauer, and managed by Jose Mourinho, according to Goal.com, citing a club press release:

"The end result is that, on paper, the Skrill South team will be without doubt the best combination of playing talent that has ever been assembled," a Farnborough press release boasted.

"It's not just the Farnborough FC faithful, all Skrill South fans now need only to travel to Paddy Power Park, and not Camp Nou, to see some of the world's best players."

But who gets to wear the coveted number 10 shirt?
