Premier League Name Translator: #5 Albert Eagle

Posted by - January 29, 2010 - Liverpool, Name Translator

Cutting through the exotic monikers of Premier League imports so you can judge the player, not the name

This is arguably the most mistranslated name in Premier League. Waterline? Watercarrier? Watermelon? No, it is eagle-related. Either that or your ancestors used to live in the town of L’Aquila (which means The Eagle in any case).

That’s right, Alberto Aquilani is Albert Eagle.
