Dominik Szoboszlai’s start to life in a Liverpool shirt has been very impressive.
The Hungarian international captain appears perfectly suited to Premier League football, but fans are struggling with the pronunciation of his name.
And with the 22-year-old looking likely to play a major role for Liverpool in the coming years, we better get on with finding out exactly how you say his name.
How do you pronounce Dominik Szoboszlai?
Looking at the midfielder’s second name, there are probably about a 100 different variations that someone could try.
But luckily, just after he completed his £60million move from RB Leipzig, Liverpool released a short video showing Szoboszlai pronouncing his name.
In the video, he’s asked by a member of the Liverpool media team to say his name.
And according to the man himself, the correct pronunciation is as follows.
So, in the end, it’s not too difficult and the trick is to ignore the Zs.
Following his move, Szoboszlai said: “When I knew I was going to join, I sat down for like five minutes and thought, ‘Well, I have to do now even more because they have really, really good quality, they have really, really good players.’ After the first session, I just felt it like: ‘OK, let’s get ready.’
“I came here because I already loved the club even when I didn’t play in front of the fans or in the stadium.
“I want to give my best, I want to do everything for the club, for the guys, for myself. And I want to win trophies and as much as I can, not only one.
“I just do my things. If the goals are coming they are coming, if the assists are coming they are coming.
“This is my target: the team should be successful. If the team is successful you’re going to be successful as a person, as a player.”
