Congratulations to Liverpool defender Kolo Toure.
Footballers are not often associated with the English language, but Kolo has managed to get his own name in the Oxford dictionary.
The Ivorian centre back has entertained everyone (besides Liverpool fans) in the last couple of weeks, with a couple of howlers worthy of any Christmas DVD.
First came his horror pass at West Bromwich Albion which ran straight into the path of former Everton striker Victor Anichebe, gifting the Baggies an equaliser and a crucial point against the Reds.
And last night he was at it again, horribly slicing a weak cross into his own net to give Fulham the lead at Craven Cottage.
A late Steven Gerrard penalty spared his blushes in the end, but that hasn’t prevented Toure making his way into the Oxford dictionary.
Kolo Toure – the verb – to pull a Kolo Toure.
“I was going to clear the ball, but I Kolo Toure’d it.”
Let’s see how quickly we can get this to catch on.
