Owen Hargreaves is full of praise for how his fellow new signings have overcome language barriers to adapt to life at United.

The England midfielder is the only English-speaking new arrival this summer, while Nani, Anderson and Carlos Tevez are still learning the club's mother tongue.

Despite the potential for communication difficulties, the trio have all settled into life around Carrington, and the Reds' season has burst spectacularly into life in recent weeks.

“Nani, Anderson and Carlos don't speak a lot of English, but I think they fit in extremely well, get along with everyone very well and they've been fabulous,†he told MUTV.

“Carlos, this month, has been exceptional, his work rate is great and he and Wazza complement each other very well. As long as we're scoring goals and winning games, I think everyone's happy.â€

Hargreaves made his fourth appearance for the club against Middlesbrough last weekend, and he admits that it can be hard to maintain his discipline while surrounded by the perpetual motion of the Reds' attacking talent.

“At times you want to get involved,†he conceded. “My job is to keep it simple and protect the back four, but you kind of get sucked in because everyoneâ™s running around you!â€
