We wouldn’t have thought it was the toughest surname to work out (he’s hardly in Sinthaweechai Hathairattanakool’s league), but still new Tottenham defender Vlad Chiriches has been press-ganged by the club into releasing an audio guide to demonstrate the correct pronunciation of his name.
Apparently several bamboozled Spurs fans contacted the club after the Romanian centre-half’s transfer went through, all struggling to get their minds/mouths around his name, so the club responded: “You’ve been Tweeting us asking how to pronounce the last name of our new Romanian signing. So, we asked him…”
Now you know and, as always, knowing is half the battle.
