Drinkwater, Banana and Other Funny Footballer Names That Will Make You Laugh

News Hub Creator

There are some footballer names I have seen, and wondered how the commentator managed to pronounce them without biting his tongue. Names like Papastathopoulos, Wawrzyniak and Szczesny. A simple attempt at pronouncing such names will leave you laughing at yourself. Other names like Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have seemed quite difficult to pronounce, but over the years I think I got accustomed to them.

Then there are names too, which may not be difficult to pronounce, but which leave me wondering, "How will someone bear this kind of name?" The first day, I saw the name 'Daniel Drinkwater,' it really felt amusing. And then I saw the name 'Yaya Banana' at AFCON 2019. There's also a footballer, whose name is Rat. Like, come on, it's really using seeing such names on a footballer's shirt.
