Premier League Name Translator: Paul Gravedigger
Cutting through the exotic monikers of Premier League imports
Apparently, this Premier League name is so menacing that it’s meaning is implied.
The first part of the surname refers to burial. Although the translation isn’t exact, if you’ve got burying in your surname you ancestors must have been doing some digging for a living and the rough translation is to gravedigger.
And there’s no doubt that Wolves fans were left feeling dead and buried by the time he’d finished with them at the weekend.
That’s right, Pavel Pogrebnyak is Paul Gravedigger.
