As a result of variation in nationality, race, ethnicity, region, languages, etc, the correct pronunciation of players' names in football can be sometimes difficult except if someone learned it.

Chelsea FC has several players who came from different parts of the world; mostly from Europe, Africa, and South America.

Meanwhile, several fans around the world find it hard to pronounce some of these player's names. These supporters also wondered at the way English commentators pronounced their names during matchdays like Con-tay instead of Kan-te.

However, according to UEFA news, here is the correct way of pronouncing the following player's names in Chelsea including their head coach, Thomas Tuchel:
