Maicosuel unravels name mystery

“My father wanted to call me Maxwell, but the person working at the registrar’s office didn’t understand him and wrote it down wrong,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

It is a similar tale to that of ex-Inter right-back Douglas Maicon, who was meant to be named after the actor Michael Douglas.
