Sergio Aguero has left football fans in stitches after struggling to name some of the most recognisable footballers on the planet – and using the wrong names for both Jack Grealish and Chelsea's Jorginho.
The former Manchester City forward, who retired just two months after making his Barcelona debut due to cardiac arrhythmia, is now a social media sensation and has four million TikTok followers.
The 33-year-old made well be one of the best strikers of his generation and one of the best players in Premier League history – but he would rank pretty low when it comes to naming fellow professionals from around Europe.
On seeing Grealish in a timed quiz which tests knowledge of names on TikTok, Aguero says: "Errr Grishi!" Before being handed the answer and looking embarrassed.
Next up was Javier Hernandez, with Aguero nailing his nickname: "Chicharito."
For Ivan Perisic, Aguero admits not remembering his name, before just about getting the name of PSG's Leandro Paredes, with whom he played alongside on nine occasions for Argentina.
With a second to spare, the retired forward named Olivier Giroud, before naming Phil Foden without hesitation – and finally calling Jorginho – Serginho.

A City fan said in response: "How does he not know the names of other footballers. Calling Jorginho Serginho."
With a second adding: "This is too funny man. I love Aguero." A third laughed: "Grishi lmaoooooooooo." With a fourth saying: "This guy does not watch football at all."
Aguero, who was recently honoured with a statue outside the Etihad, fired home 260 goals for the club across 20 seasons, becoming their all-time record goalscorer.
His retirement announcement was charged with emotion, with the icon telling fans: "It is a very difficult moment.
"The decision I have made I have taken for my health, that is the main reason, because of the problem that I had a month-and-a-half ago.
"I was in good hands of the medical staff who have done their best and have told me the best thing would be to stop playing."
