Morgan Schneiderlin: I settled at Southampton thanks to Del Boy

Morgan Schneiderlin admits he used 'Only Fools and Horses' to help him settle at Southampton.

The midfielder says Nigel Adkins' troops will be entertained by DVDs of the hit BBC sitcom on their way to West Ham United today.

Schneiderlin, 22, said: "I was only 18 when I came over and for me it was a frightening thing leaving my family and friends.

"Some of the players told me about Coronation Street and EastEnders and they made me watch Only Fools and Horses.

"They get me to translate what Del Boy was saying in French, which is very funny.

"The boys love the show and we will watch it on our way to West Ham."
