Manchester United banter: German star Schweinsteiger recalls an English joke

by | 18th, August 2015

One day when Bastian Schweinsteiger is on the after-dinner speaking circuit, he will surely hark back to his days at Manchester United. Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Schweinsteiger has given us all a hint of the kind of anecdotes we can expect from the German midfielder:

“The English have a special sense of humour. This I immediately experienced in the dressing room.

“As I walked with two plates while eating, suddenly a teammate asked me ‘Basti, what time is it?’ – Hoping I would automatically turn my hand to look at my watch.”

Funny? Or just special? But the actual funny part is Schweinsteiger’s review of the big English gag:

“That’s quite entertaining.”

He’s deadpan. He’s the German Jack Dee
