Arsenal fan left embarrassed after he spells new signing Mathieu Debuchy's name WRONG on his brand new club shirt
Debuchy completed his move from Newcastle to the Gunners earlier this month but one fan will be reluctant to wear his new kit out in public after making the error
Unlike previous years, Arsenal have entered the summer transfer market early in order to sign Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy from Barcelona and Newcastle respectively, giving fans reason to be optimistic ahead of the new season.
A number of Sanchez shirts can already be seen around the Islington area, while there are also a considerable amount of Debuchy-clad Arsenal kits to be spotted near the Emirates.
However, one fan won’t be keen to show his face near the home of the Gunners after he had the right-back’s name printed on the back of his brand new Puma-sponsored Arsenal kit – with the wrong name on it.
The fan posted the picture on Twitter, only to realise that the name read ‘Debucy’, missing the all-important ‘H’ from the Frenchman’s surname.

Debuchy was signed from the Magpies for a reported £12m to replace his compatriot Bacary Sagna, after he elected to run down his contract and join Manchester City on a free transfer.
Sagna was a crowd favourite at the Emirates for his seven years of service, but supporters will hope that Debuchy can quickly help them to forget Sagna after he joined their Premier League rivals – becoming the fifth Arsenal player to join the Manchester club in recent years after Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri all made the same move north.
The club agreed a whopping £150m five-year kit deal with Puma that came into effect at the beginning of the season, with a new shirt setting fans back £50 for the home kit plus an extra £16 for a name and number on the back.

Spending a total of £66 on a shirt that has a misspelling of Arsenal's latest signing on the back - now that's a deal Arsene Wenger won't approve of.
