AUDIO: Watford's whistleblower Beppe Sannino attempts English during his post-Barnsley press conference

This Is Local London: Picture: Holly Cant Picture: Holly Cant

It was clear Beppe Sannino is a character before he even joined Watford and he is already showing that in his post-match press conferences, which he often starts and ends by imitating a referee's whistle.

The Italian was very apologetic for being unable to speak English following his arrival three months ago but he has attempted the odd phrase where possible.

And on Saturday the Hornets' head coach attempted to answer questions in English fully for the first time midway through his post-Barnsley interview.

You can hear Sannino's press conference below.

Will that put some doom mongers quiet now ?? Beppe has found it quite difficult to learn English but he trys a lot , All they speak on the training pitch is English and a couple of the coaches are really good with their English now. Before anyone starts slating them you go to Italy get thrown into a high pressure job and lets see how your Italian is after 4 months.

Good to hear Beppe speaking a little English at last.

I did pose this question over the weekend on this forum, so thanks to Frank for at least posting this interview, if not asking Beppe to speak some English?

I don't see it as a huge issue anyway.It's very common for overseas players who speak little English to work under an English manager so what's the difference? We're talking about cries of 'push forward' and 'pass left' here, it's not like he's trying to talk down a passenger who has been left to land a Boeing 747.
