Man Utd boss Ferguson becoming fluent in Portuguese

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he's becoming fluent in Portuguese courtesy of their recent signings.

"I have learned a few words over time, because Portuguese is very important here," says Ferguson in tomorrow's matchday programme. "We have Carlos Queiroz, Ronaldo, Anderson, Nani , the Silva brothers and Rodrigo Possebon, who all speak Portuguese."

Ferguson admits he's also learned another language.

"I can also speak a little French," he said. "I love very much to talk to Evra, Silvestre and Saha because it allows me to develop my French."
