Manchester United’s Spanish/Portuguese speaking team-mates enjoyed a team bonding session out tonight over some dinner.
After the summer arrivals there is a whole host of Spanish speaking and Portuguese speaking players in the squad now.
United have Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Angel di MAria, Anderson, Andreas Pereira, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, David de Gea and not forgetting Radamel Falcao who was seemingly absent from dinner (or behind the camera).
It’s great to see the players getting on so well outside of being United players because it makes a real difference to how well a team can play if they all know each other as friends rather than just colleagues.
Falcao summed it up perfectly when he talked about how United’s squad still needed to gel this season: “Bit by bit we will gel together as a team and the new players will feel more comfortable. I hope everything continues for us like it has done today.”
Nights out like this will do nothing but help build that camaraderie.
Update: Clearly it wasn’t just the Spanish/Portuguese speaking players out tonight.
