With ten different nationalities currently comprising their first-team squad, Sporting Lisbon decided to bridge the various language barriers in the spirit of Christmas unity and goodwill to all men.

Indeed, as part of their festive social media assault, the Portuguese club had their multi-lingual players and staff wish each other ‘Merry Christmas’ in their native tongue before attempting to teach the relevant seasonal greetings to one another.

It’s all rather sweet (coach Jorge Jesus trying to get his head around Chinese is a highlight) and a damn sight more entertaining than it sounds on paper…
