Premier League Name Translator: Christian Bald Eagle (Arsenal)
Cutting through the exotic monikers of Premier League imports
Continuing our occasional series in which we help the newest Premier League arrivals to resonate with the average fan a little better by translating their name into English, please meet Christian Bald Eagle.
This is not a fervently religious bird of prey that we’re talking about. No, Christian Balde Eagle is better known as soon-to-be Arsenal new boy Krystian Bielik.
That’s a literal translation, at least. If we allow for the fact that the edges tend to get knocked off these things in all languages over the years, we could probably argue that the Gunners are on the verge of signing the Polish Chris Eagles.
With his name in mind, perhaps a loan move that would see the 17-year-old defensive midfielder join Yaya Sanogo at Crystal Palace is the most suitable outcome for all those involved.
