Man Utd star Chicharito: I can't understand Rooney's Scouse accent!

Manchester United teammates have no idea what Wayne Rooney is saying to them!

Mexican star Javier Hernandez, 24, says he can differentiate between forward Danny Welbeck's Mancunian accent and Rooney's Liverpool lilt - but sometimes struggles to make out what Wayne, 27, is saying.

He said: "When I first came here, everyone that spoke English sounded exactly the same.

"But now I know the accents. Mind you, it's still difficult to understand Wazza sometimes, though!"

Recalling when he joined United in 2006, Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic, 31, said of Rooney: "I thought he spoke German because his accent is different."
