Simpson: Pique keeps Man Utd dressing room together

Manchester United defender Gerard Pique is the man that keeps the dressing room together, reveals Danny Simpson.

Asked about how he gets along with so many foreigners at the club, Simpson told manutd.com: "Gerard Pique is the middle man! He's translator for us. With someone like Nani, his English has come on a lot. The other week he was a bit bored so we went for something to eat and he turned up with his English book in his hand.

"Cristiano helps him and Anderson quite a bit. You always know what they're trying to say and you can see on the pitch that different languages are not a barrier. Nani, Anderson and Carlos Tevez are the newest foreign lads, but they're all great. They've always got a smile on their face, which is nice to have in the changing room."
