We get every Premier League player to sit down on camera and say how they want their name pronounced - and there’s LOADS I did wrong. So here’s a thread so you don’t make the same mistakes I did!
First of all - Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki. His first name is actually pronounced ‘TAY-mu’ #ncfc
How about Chelsea’s #USMNT star Christian Pulisic? His surname is ‘puh-LISS-ick’, no Eastern European style ‘itch’ on the end #CFC
Kevin De Bruyne is a really tough one for British people as the sound in his surname doesn’t really exist in English - it’s sort of ‘de BRERRR-neh’ rather that pronouncing the ‘y’ in the middle #mcfc
We might not see him for a while but his #MCFC teammate Leroy Sané has more of a ‘z’ sound at the start of his surname - ‘ZAH-nay’ - instead of an ‘s’
How about some new signings? This one has pretty much caught on already but #WHUFC’s new striker Sébastien Haller - his surname is ‘AL-air’
Southampton’s new forward Che Adams I’ve been saying wrong for years - his first name has a soft ‘ch’ so it’s ‘SHAY’ Adams #saintsfc
At Spurs, they have a pair of new midfielders - it’s ‘TON-gee’ Ndombele and Giovani Lo ‘SELL-so’ #COYS
Then there’s loads that have been here for years and I’ve never been sure:
Granit Xhaka (‘CHA-ka’) #AFC
Juan Foyth (‘FOYT’) #COYS
Martin Dubravka (‘du-BRAW-ka’) #NUFC
Joël Matip (‘jo-EL MAH-tip’) #LFC
Richarlison (‘RI-shar-li-son’) #EFC
Pronunciations continued...
Fabien Delph (‘FAY-bee-en’) #EFC
Cheikhou Kouyaté (‘SHEK-oo’) #CPFC
James Tarkowski (‘tar-KOFF-ski’) #twitterclarets
Sean Dyche (‘DIE-tch’)
Conor Hourihane (‘HOWR-i-han’) #avfc
Hopefully they’re of some use to you - all of the above I was doing wrong myself until I sat down to listen to the player themselves say their name!
