Lithuanian football club believed Wikipedia and signed an agreement with a football player who invented a career
Lithuanian football club Panevezys has signed a contract with striker Barkley Miguel Panzo. This news would not have caused a stir, if it were not for one “but”. The smart football player deceived everyone.
Panevezys proudly announced that they would be joined by a new player. When signing the contract, Barkley Miguel Panzo presented information taken from Wikipedia, which stated that from 2010 to 2012 he was the attacker of Queens Park Rangers, scoring 24 goals in the English club in 36 matches, and also for Angola played three matches.
But the joy of "Panevezys" did not last long. It turned out that Panzo's entire career was a hoax.He never played for Queens Park Rangers, as he did for Angola. All this is fiction of Panzo himself and his agents. The Wikipedia page was simply edited. In fact, Panzo played for the club of the eighth English division, “Walton”.
WTF: Barkley Miguel Panzo, footballer of a footballer named as a big star!

The error of the Lithuanian club reported the Football Daily edition on Twitter.
The football club refutes the information that the athlete was taken to the team, based on information from Wikipedia. The official website states that the contract was signed after Panzo demonstrated his abilities on the field.
