One day I'm hoping that a commentator will grow some balls and use the correct German pronunciation of Christian Fuchs' surname

I’m in Kitchener, Ontario, a city with a huge population of German decent. Formerly called Berlin, changed to Kitchener during WW1 for obvious reasons. The pronunciation of names such as Fuchs and Kuntz has been anglicized to protect the innocent :lol:

Danny Shittu.... also slightly different but there are a few players out there that don't suit their surnames because of their usual meaning i.e. Peter Crouch - being so tall and Kyle Walker - who's main attribute is arguably running fast

Do you remember the East German from years ago called Kuntz? Commentators used to pronounce it Koontz if I recall and that was in the days before political correctness.

That's how it is pronounced. As is Fuchs - Fooks.

I suppose the Argentinian footballed Oscar Arce was pronounced differently too - I don't know.
