PIC: BBC subtitles rename Fabrice Muamba with possibly the worst attempt at his name ever


Conan Doherty

It’s not even close.

Fabry Smell Amber.

That’s how the BBC spelled Fabrice Muamba’s name tonight as he spoke after the Bolton and Liverpool FA Cup clash at the Macron Stadium.

The former Wanderers player, 26, came on at the end of the home side’s 2-1 defeat and he obviously threw whoever was working the subtitles for the station right off his game.

Imagine the poor intern caught off-guard, unsure of who he was, told what to write and too shy to ask what his name was again. So he gave it his best shot.

Well, he gave it his worst shot.
