Many have tried but few have succeeded in impersonating Chris Kamara’s famous ‘Unbelievable Jeff’ catchphrase.
The Sky Sports pundit is a well-loved figure amongst football fans for his hilarious live commentary, often missing goals and reacting in a confused manner when asked for details.
And it seems his punditry is just as popular amongst professional footballers, with Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno reportedly screaming ‘Unbelievable Jeff’ in the dressing room following their incredible victory over Borussia Dortmund at Anfield in the Europa League.

Unfortunately for us, his chant wasn’t caught on camera, but thanks to reporter at a recent press conference, the Spaniard was asked to re-enact his rendition.
In the video below, Moreno produces what could quite possibly be the worst Chris Kamara impression ever attempted at 0:25.

Awful, right? If anything, it sounds more like an attempt to mimic Channing Tatum saying ‘my name is Jeff’ in 22 Jump Street (again, see below).
Liverpool fans will care little about how good Moreno is at impersonations, of course, and more how well he’s playing under Jurgen Klopp - which is very.
The 23-year-old has come on leaps and bounds since the German succeeded Brendan Rodgers last October, and he attributes his improvements to greater game time.
He said during the same press conference, per the Mirror: “It was hard at first with Brendan. He didn’t seem to count on me much.
“I trained, I was 100% and didn’t play much. But that’s now in the past.
“Working with Mr Klopp, he’s put his trust in me and now I’m in one of my best moments as a footballer.”
Liverpool face Villarreal on Thursday in their Europa League semi-final first leg and are fancied as favourites heading into the tie.
Moreno, however, insists there are no favourites at this stage of the competition.
“I don’t like to fancy ourselves as favourites,” he added. “This is a semi-final, four teams, all of them could be considered favourites. We know it is going to be hard.
“Any team could win and we hope to come out on top.”
Liverpool will hope Moreno can use his experience as a previous Europa League winner with Sevilla in 2014 to help them achieve the very same feat.
And there’s a chance the left-back could face his former employers in the competition, with the La Liga outfit due to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the other semi-final.
Moreno insists he didn’t celebrate when Liverpool weren’t drawn with Sevilla and would instead love to meet them in the final.
He also said: “2014 was a very special year for me winning that trophy, as it was my first year as a professional.
“Not only for me but for any footballer, silverware is the best thing. To win the Europa League was a great feeling."
