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.”
