Having already had his water bottle half-inched by a mischievous fan during his Premier League debut, Bastian Schweinsteiger is quickly acclimatising to English football’s world-renowned and respected brand of banter since signing for Manchester United.

Nattering away to German newspaper Bild, Schweinsteiger has been relaying tall tales of the hi-larious hi-jinks he’s being subjected to by his new colleagues at Old Trafford – revealing in the process that things are even nuttier than we thought at United these days.

Schweinsteiger told Bild:

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.

That’s quite entertaining.

Steady on people, there’s a new Crazy Gang in town and these guys are even crazier than the last lot!

Hooray for #banter.
