Manchester United new boy Bastian Schweinstieger has given an in-depth interview on his life in England so far with a German newspaper.

Contained within the exclusive interview, titled 'My new life in England', with Bild is the usual stuff top level footballers say - he wants to win the title, playing under Louis van Gaal again is 'exciting' and overcoming the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea will be tough.

But the 31-year-old World Cup winner also gave a little insight into life inside the dressing room of a top level football club.

Recounting the moment he first arrived at the club, his anecdote reads like a scene from hit TV show The Inbetweeners.

"The English have a special sense of humour," he told Bild. "This I immediately experienced in the dressing room. As I walked with two plates while eating, suddenly a team-mate asked me 'Basti, what time is it?' – Hoping I would automatically turn my hand to look at my watch.

"That’s quite entertaining."

All aboard the banter bus.
