Aston Villa misspelled the name of its new manager in a hashtag

Monday November 2nd, 2015

English soccer club Aston Villa confirmed the appointment of Rémi Garde as its new manager Monday. The former Lyon manager is under contract until through the 2018–19 season.

So you think with all the excitement over a new manager, Aston Villa would take the time to welcome him properly. Then you see this photo on the front of Aston Villa’s website:

Yeah, that's not how you spell Rémi. It’s possible whoever made the graphic loves Remy Martin’s fine champagne cognac or the Remy Boyz from Paterson, N.J. Or maybe this is one of those weird American English-British English translations we don’t understand. 

Because why else would you mess up your one job on the day your soccer club announces its new manager?
