Irish defender Eoghan O'Connell has been transferred to Wrexham Utd, the football club owned by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
While the co-owners are happy with the transfer, one of them is struggling to get to grips with the Irish name

Reynolds can be seen staring into the camera with a confused look on his face, saying "Yowan?". Ooh-Oohan? "No just Eoghan," Rob says. "Why is it so hard for you to pronounce Irish names?
The 27-year-old footballer has previously played for Charlton Atheltic , Bury and Celtic. He is also the cousin of former rugby union player Paul O'Connell. Speaking to the Mirror about his move he said "It's a club on the up. The ambition of the Club, with the manager and players here, is obviously promotion, so I'll throw myself in and see how I can contribute."
Football fans and Irish Twitter users were both quick to comment on the owners' comical video.
"Hell of a signing announcement," wrote one. Another user with the same name said: "I'm gonna be stealing this video for everyone who can't pronounce my name. Thank you, Johan."
