It could have been much worse…

Sky Sports News HQ’s Kate Abdo found herself tongue-tied during a recent bulletin on Arsenal’s latest transfer target.

The Gunners are in hot pursuit of Lyon’s French hotshot Alexandre Lacazette and, while Abdo effortlessly breezed through pronouncing the forward’s name, the aftermath was fraught with danger.

In fairness, Abdo styled out this slip of the tongue pretty well.

Abdo has been a fixture on Sky Sports since joining the station in 2013 to present its Coppa Italia coverage.

As well as appearing alongside transfer deadline day maestro Jim White (and his signature yellow tie), Abdo hosted the FIFA Ballon d’Or ceremony in 2014 and 2015. Fluent in  Spanish, French, and German, there’s probably nobody better for the job.

Having seen Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi up close at the Ballon d’Or, Abdo says their duo’s long-running duel is the real deal. 

“When you see those guys in the same room, you know there is a big rivalry,” she told Bleacher Report.

“Between the female candidates you get a sense of camaraderie, but you don’t really get that between the guys! It wasn’t hostile, but it certainly felt extremely competitive.”
