Or they could all learn German for Klopp?
Chelsea in reported talks with Pellegrini??
Sorry appears I am mistaken - sources where from over a month ago.

Si hablo espanol! Plus first post.
I'm English married to a Venezuelan and speak reasonable Spanish.
I have found it interesting contrasting David Silva (Canarian) to the Argentinians.
FWIW Their Spanish is reputed to be among the nicest to listen to, possibly for
Italian inflections in Argentinian Spanish.
Pellegrini has a very deep fast talking kind of Spanish, as if he leaves no spaces between words. He'll speak English so it hardly merits mentioning.
Aye Chilean Spanish is horrible, it's a bit like Andalucian. The miss out the last letter (especially the S's) so all the words merge together instead of being pronounced separately.
Most of the Spanish I learnt was in the far north, Santander to precise, when I was teaching English out there in the early 80s
the local accent is really impenetrable ... a Spanish version of Geordie , where vowels are kept well hidden...
So for a Cantabrian (the santander region) 'Hasta luego' ends up as 'Huh loggo'
bloody nightmare !!!!
Nice people , mind !
Milner is probably not fluent in spanish. At the golf do, he spoke to Carlos more in verbs than in whole sentences. But he is making an effort and I think Tevez and Milner are probably good friends what with golf being their shared passion.
Don't forget the Welsh influence
Bollox, that accent is straight outta Boggart Hole Clough!
