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."
