Joao Mario, you had ONE job.
The Portuguese worldwide formally signed for West Ham on Thursday in a mortgage deal from Serie giants Inter.
The London Stadium outfit did their bit with a fairly cool announcement of the switch, mocking up the traditional Tremendous Mario character, however then it was right down to Mario himself to say just a few motivational phrases to get followers pumped for his signing.
It did not precisely go to plan. Because it seems, the 25-year-old’s English is just not but sparking, and what was meant to be the membership’s staple phrase of ‘Come on you Irons’, really got here out ‘Come on wires’, in a fairly comical combine up.
Not one of the best of begins for the previous Sporting CP star, who in equity didn’t should be topic to ridicule so early on if the membership had clocked his mistake and made him say it correctly.
Mario, a Euro 2016 winner with Portugal, has been the continual focal point on the membership’s Twitter feed since his seize, and he got here on for his official debut as a second half substitute within the defeat to Wigan Athletic within the FA Cup fourth spherical.
Sadly, Mario adopted up his Come on you Irons blunder by dropping a fairly ineffective efficiency, and he’ll be hoping to fare a bit higher in his first Premier League outing.
