Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta is one Argie who loves Manchester life.

He also developed a taste for fish and chips and learned to speak English.

Even now he spends six hours a week with the same tutor who is teaching Sergio Aguero the lingo.

“It is very important to learn English,” said Zabaleta. “When I came here, I didn’t speak any English – like ­Sergio now – but very quickly I had lessons. It’s important to speak to the fans.

“Sergio and David (Silva) are improving their English and they both have a really good attitude to learning.”

He added: “I also used to live in Didsbury and I like to eat fish and chips. But so what? We are only human.”
