And the 46-year-old had a tough time pronouncing the Chelsea defender’s name, although he did improve at the second attempt.
Earlier this week, Merson criticised Arsenal for being “absolutely clueless” after the Gunners squandered a three-goal lead against Anderlecht on Tuesday.
“I think they are tactically clueless, that’s an honest opinion,” Merson said on Sky Sports.
“This is not the first time it’s happened, it’s happened a lot. It’s absolutely clueless. For me the manager has to get a message on, but these are international footballers, they are not little kids.”
