Stuart Pearce confuses Stoke City new boy with Colombian pop star

Shaqiri

Gets paid a truck load to get players' names wrong. The dream...

Getting people's names right is really hard, especially when you get paid a load of money to do it on television in front of millions of people.

However you'd think if you had been a manager for over a decade, you'd at least know the difference between Stoke City's new signing and a Colombian pop star... 

Sadly for Stuart Pearce, he doesn't and reckons Shakira will be a great signing for Stoke after seeing him play against his England U21 side a few years back. Psycho Pearce was on Sky Sports News giving his 'expert' opinion, when he managed to get muddled up... 

HOW?! 

This may well be worse than Paul Merson getting confused between Chelsea's Willian and the Black Eyed peas and The Voice load mouth, Will I Am... 

Either way, both aren't as bad a professional football manager, Neil Warnock, believing that Christian Benteke still plays for Aston Villa and telling the Mirror: "I do hope Benteke starts to get like he can do."

Incredible...
