Papiss Cisse's Boots and 26 Top Typos in Football
Picture via Sammy Ameobi/Twitter

Newcastle United's Sammy Ameobi tweeted a picture of the boots sent to his teammate Papiss Cissé by Nike this week, as one does. There was just one problem: whoever was in charge of personalizing the boots had made a mistake when spelling Cissé's name! Or rather "Sisse's" name.

No news yet on whether Newcastle's new Director Of Football, Joe Kinnear, had ordered the boots. 

But we've been going through the history books and we've been unearthing the 26 best (or worst) spelling errors ever made in football.

Before we start, we'd like to apologize for the late publishing of this article. We would have posted it last week, but as we're getting on our high horse about spelling, we had to proof read it 19,304 times. Any spelling mistakes you do notice were put there on purpose as a meta-joke. Honest. 

WARNING: There are a few instances of people (accidentally) using offensive language in this slideshow.
