Not speaking Arabic ourselves it’s difficult to know exactly how badly the Manchester City players failed in the latest viral video to come out of Eastlands.
To supplement the launch of a new Arabic Manchester City website, a host of City players were asked to speak into the camera and say in Arabic “Follow the latest news on our Arabic website.”
For the likes of Adam Johnson, Michael Johnson and Micah Richards, it was plainly obvious that the threesome had no clue what was going on as they spoke Arabic with thick local accents. Others, including Patrick Vieira, Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott and Emmanuel Adebayor however seemed to do a lot better with the new language.
