Man Utd boss Ferguson amazed by squad's multicultural unity

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits the club's senior players play a major role in new signings settling at Old Trafford.

Fergie said: "I see them all sat at the table and we have Spanish, Argentinians, Brazilians, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Koreans and Serbians all communicating and understanding each other and laughing, and I say to myself why can't they understand me?

"They are going to Carlos Queiroz and asking 'Carlos, what does the boss say?' "It's amazing how they do it and fantastic to watch them - we should video it."

"Because of my time here and the presence of the older players, any new player quickly gets to know what I am about.

"For instance, a couple of players took my parking space. They came in the dressing room and the other players said 'You'd better get that car moved or you're in trouble!'"
