Manchester United star’s name subtitled in hilarious fashion

Published Add your comment

Manchester United teenager Adnan Januzaj has been a rare bright spot in an otherwise demoralising season for the Premier League champions. But, despite the rise in profile of the young midfielder, it would appear his is a name not recognised by everyone.

We can count the subtitles operators at the BBC among those who are not familiar with the 19-year-old, as became apparent during Match of the Day 2 on Sunday night with a bizarre interpretation of his name appearing on the screen.

As the assembled team of pundits - Mark Lawrenson, Robbie Savage and Martin Keown - lamented the problems Manchester United have, they began to list the quality players that should be able to arrest their slide.

Javier Hernandez, Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata were all easy enough to decipher for the subtitling equipment, but Adnan Januzaj provided a much more difficult proposition.

Cue this hilarious fail: “Janet jazz jazz jam.”
