It’s not often that a football player’s surname and number will present the perfect pun opportunity — but when that opportunity does present itself, it’s important to grasp it with both hands.

The player in the shot above is Yado Mambo. He plays for Ebbsfleet United.

As someone on Twitter pointed out, though, there’s something painfully wrong with the number on the shirt he’s been given.

Such a shame.

Soon, someone else pointed out a similar missed opportunity.

Can players change shirt numbers after they’ve already been given one? Can special circumstances be made when an opportunity is simply far too good to pass up?

Surely, in this case, the answer is a resounding yes.

It’s your move, Ebbsfleet United.
