VIDEO: Children laugh at ‘funny’ player names in Premier League sticker album

West Ham, Southampton, Leicester and Brighton stars singled out for hilarity.



Two young football fans enjoyed a good chuckle as they picked player names they found funny out of a Merlin Premier League sticker album.

One of the boys is wearing a Manchester United shirt, but we don’t know who the other kid supports as we only see his face in this clip.

Singled out for laughter are the names of West Ham United’s Andriy Yarmolenko, Southampton’s Manolo Gabbiadini and Leicester City’s Shinji Okazaki.

The “best one of today” is then revealed by the boy in the Man Utd jersey: Gaëtan Bong of Brighton and Hove Albion.

Repeating the names back to each other, the children roll about laughing in glee at the previously unfamiliar player names.
