Watch: Paul Merson hilariously tries to pronounce names of new signings


Paul Merson has a big challenge on his hands to pronounce the names of Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham new signings.

Former Arsenal hero Merson often gets himself in a spot of bother on Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday as he struggles to get names right.

And in his grading of every team’s transfer window for Sky Sports, he even admitted: “Mohamed Elyounoussi from Basel is a good player, he’s going to be a nightmare for me to pronounce.”

On the eve of the new season, presenter Jeff Stelling tested Merson on whether he could indeed pronounce a number of new signings in the Premier League.

Mattéo Guendouzi is our personal favourite, while his reaction at reading some of the names as alone is golden.

We absolutely bloody love you, Merse.
