Former Arsenal star Jeremie Aliadiere left fans baffled as he appeared on popular Saturday morning show Soccer AM.
Aliadiere featured on the Sky show ahead of the Manchester derby though often looked bemused during the show.
But while the Frenchman may have been confused himself, he left fans scratching their heads as he began to speak.
"Jeremie Aliadiere on Soccer AM with the craziest French/cockney accent," wrote one Twitter user.
While another added: "Jeremie Aliadiere's accent….quality! Is he French, is he a Londoner, who knows."
With a third reminiscing: "Watching @SoccerAM, what a bloke and player Aliadiere is and was, the good old days."
And one more commenting: "Jeremie Aliadiere on @SoccerAM here. Still looks 21."
Aliadiere joined the Gunners as at the age of 16 and went on to make 51 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring nine goals.
He spent time on loan at Celtic, West Ham and Wolves to get more first-team football before leaving permanently to join Middlesbrough in 2007.
Though he does have one regret over his decisions, previously saying: “If I was to relive my career, I would never leave Arsenal.
"I left just when I was going to win. If I didn’t break through with the Gunners, it was because I wasn’t psychologically ready.

"I always felt inferior to the first team. I didn’t have that ego, that self-confidence.”
Though his time at Arsenal did not get off to the best of starts, with Aliadiere adding: “I was very reserved, so in front of about 40 kids who looked at me in great silence, I was stressed.
"I was going to shake everyone’s hand but the English just say: 'Morning'. Everyone laughed.
"It was starting well, they were already laughing at me. It didn’t give me any confidence.”
