Bastian Schweinsteiger has been limited to two substitute appearances in the Premier League so far as he tries to regain full fitness, but both performances have seen the World Cup winning captain enter the action at a critical time and help his team grind out the result.
While he already looks comfortable on the pitch, he is clearly enjoying life in England outside of football, as one glace at his Instagram account will tell you, but if you needed further proof, then the man himself is more than happy to tell everyone how much he is enjoying England so far.
Speaking to Bild, Bastian told his fellow Germans about the unique English sense of humour, which he did so by making perhaps the most German quote we've ever heard:
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.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is some Elite, Premier League level banter. That's what the utterly deplorable word banter was invented for.
Whatever about the unique English humour, the ability to tell a joke, explain the intentions of the joke, and then explain that they were then entertained by the joke is the type of thing that can make a man called Bastian Schweinsteiger seem more German. Something we previously thought was impossible.
We can only hope for more stories from the ridiculously hilarious Manchester United football/comedy club in the near future.
