With the Hammers leading comfortably after late strikes from Mohammed Kudus and Tomas Soucek, West Ham boss David Moyes hooked Paqueta in the 86th minute.

But fans watching TNT Sports‘ coverage of the game were shocked to see a different name come up on the sub graphic.

Rather than Paqueta, the graphic displayed the name: “Tolentino Coelho de Lima.”

One baffled fan asked: “[What] The f*** is that name? Why do we call him Lucas Paqueta?”

However, the 26-year-old does not actually have Paqueta in his name.

Instead, his real name is Lucas Tolentino Coelho de Lima.

So where does Paqueta come from? You may ask.

Paqueta is in fact the midfielders nickname.


It is also a reference to his place of birth on Paqueta Island, located in the Guanabara Bay of Rio de Janeiro.

Paqueta was the subject of transfer interest from Manchester City before they pulled out of a deal after an FA Probe into alleged betting breaches.

He was seen hugging City boss Pep Guardiola as they played West Ham last weekend.
