Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has admitted to not fully understanding Wayne Rooney because of the forward's accent.
The Germany captain joined manager Louis van Gaal for a pre-match press conference ahead of United's UEFA Champions League clash against Wolfsburg on Wednesday night.
Schweinsteiger’s teammate Rooney recently revealed his love for poetry, and when the midfielder was asked if the captain recites poems in the changing room, the former Bayern Munich player admitted to not understanding the striker's accent at times.
"I never speak about what happens in the dressing room," he answered.
"But sometimes I don’t understand him when he speaks in his Scouse accent."
The German went on to speak about the clash against Wolfsburg, saying the Red Devils have a tough encounter ahead of them.
"I scored my first ever goal away at Wolfsburg, so I have good memories of them," he added.
"I always remember that it was never easy to play against them. It was always tough matches.
"At the moment, they have a great team. In the last three or four years, they improved a lot.
"I'm looking forward to the match. It will be a big challenge for us."
The German has featured 11 times for United this season, having joined from Bayern in the latest transfer window.
