If there’s one thing that football fans ask of any commentator, it’s that they do their due diligence and at least know how to pronounce a player’s name properly, something that Graeme Le Saux consistently failed to do in the Liverpool v Man United game on Sunday.
It’s not even as if it was a difficult name to pronounce to begin with, and yet for some reason ‘Gakpo’ caused the former Chelsea and Blackburn Rovers man all sorts of problems.
Have a listen… and a chuckle!
I literally am begging someone at NBC to tell Le Saux that his name is not Gapko #LIVMAN pic.twitter.com/vyLQZ7yCFS
