Football fans on Twitter mocked BT Sport commentator Martin Keown for making a series of blunders during the Champions League quarter-final between Bayern Munich and Paris-Saint Germain.
The former Arsenal man received pelters for his pronunciation of former Stoke man Eric Choupo-Moting, with one likening Keown's attempts to that of a commentator on Pro Evolution Soccer.
Choupo-Moting scored Bayern's first goal in a topsy-turvy contest that swung the way of PSG thanks to a brace from Kylian Mbappe and a first-half goal from Marquinhos.
PSG won the match 3-2 to take a significant advantage into the second-leg, but during the match it was Keown's commentary that was receiving attention on social media.
One wrote: "How many ways can Martin Keown pronounce Choupo-Moting in one game? Chopper-Moting personal favourite so far."
Another added: "Martin keown been calling choupa moting choupa motor all night."
While a third chimed with an extra subtle dig: "Martin Keown is having an absolute SHOCKER with these player names… Jesum Crust."
And a fourth user remarked: "Martin Keown has so far called Marquinhos "Marchisio" and Eric Choupo-Moting "Choupo Motta". He's getting closer, lads."
Other said "Martin Keown's teamsheet was made using Pro Evolution Soccer" and "Martin Keown has called Choupo-Moting by the name of Chopper Mota, Marquinhos by the name of Marchisio and Dagba by the name of Dogba."
Keown has less than a week to brush up on his pronunciation, with the second-leg between PSG and Bayern pencilled in for Parc des Princes on Tuesday 13th April.
