Pic: Former Barca defender left red faced after tweeting photo with Andrew ‘Dwight’ Cole



Well, that’s a little embarrassing, Eric.

We all know how hard it is to remember everyone’s name at the office, but it’s probably a good idea to double check who you’re standing beside when you tweet out a workplace pic.

Former France defender Eric Abidal was part of the Bein Sports panel at Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final between Juventus and Real Madrid, and it was a case of mistaken identity when it came to former Manchester United striker Andrew Cole.


At least he got Luis Garcia and Michel Salgado right, but Abidal quickly removed the tweet from his timeline and replaced it with a hasty correction.
