Newcastle United fans couldn’t believe that Alexander Isak was truly Swedish after the clip.

Newcastle Unitedsupporters couldn't believe their ears when watching a recent light-hearted piece of behind-the-scenes content produced by the club.

The Magpies squad were cajoled into a game of Guess Who at the training ground in between sessions with Jamaal Lascelles, Jacob Murphy, Bruno Guimaraes, Miguel Almiron and Alexander Isak all taking part in a Newcastle United version of the game.

Supporters loved seeing the stars bonding but it was one player in particular who has sent social media alight following his appearances and that is talisman Alexander Iask.

The striker shocked viewers with his brilliantly British accent in place of the Swedish twang that supporters were expecting. Isak bantered with Lascelles over what time Murphy arrives at training and came across as the most traditionally sounding English player involved.

The clip from the club garnered over eight million views online as football fans flocked in disbelief to hear the accent leaving Isak's mouth with one admitting that even after five views the star’s voice had left his mind boggled.

One Twitter user said: "Hahahahaha Isak’s spent too much time with Willock, clearly. His accent is now North London Roadman."

Another added: "I had no idea Alexander Isak had an accent like he’s from Colchester."

Others joked that Isak must have taken his English lessons from Top Boy and that he should be 'eligible for England' thanks to his accent.

The Newcastle United forward was born to Eritrean parents in Solna, Sweden and grew up in the Stockholm area. At the age of six, he became part of the AIK youth academy and would go on to make his senior debut for the club at 16 years old.

He would then go on to play for Borussia Dortmund in Germany and Real Sociedad in Spain before making the move to England in 2022 when snapped up by the Magpies for £62 million.
