What Language Do They Speak? Football?

've noticed in football games where d teams come from different continent especially d uefa champions league where d players exchange pleasantries @ the end of games, what language do they speak? I know most of these footballers know different languages but what in d world could Tevez be speaking to Drogba during d world cup cos d guy uses a Translator @ West Ham, Bolton is quite a funny team cos they've a lot of nationals there tht I begin to wonder how the coach could cope! Over to u guys

Our own Jay Jay Okocha speaks up to five languages including french and German. But there is one language not many other people speak more fluently that him: FOOTBALL.

It's quite funny though but can u remember d Fifa11 vs Uefa which had different players and i begin 2 wonder aw d coach coped even though it was a charity match. I mean what does shevchenko say2 d referees? Aw does kevin nolan talk with diouf or nakata? I feel for big sam maybe that's y he usually seats on d stands. But I think football's language is ENGLISH- THEY INVENTED D GAME and maybe that's y Sepp Blatter&Issa Hayatou 've both learnt english- even henry,drogba and other french imports now speak it

Humm

i think everyone speaks his own language.

It's just that if you feel that your partner doesn't understand what you are saying,

you can begin to make use of signals.

that's why at some in some matches, when a coach wants to give a vital information and doesn't want to wast his time speaking a language which very few of his squad understands, he makes use of signals.

My question exactly! i always ask my bro, do they even understand each other? What about if the coach wants to relay something during the match and he's shouting, what language is he using because many teams have a real big variety of nationals.
