I heard a rumour a few years ago that the only language spoken on the soccer field is english. Is this true? And if so why isn't it policed by refs? Im not being racist by all means i just dont like the fact that nonenglish speaking players could be saying some nasty stuff about us. Yeah soccer is the most popular sport in the world and caters for many nationalities but even beckham learnt and spoke spanish when playing for real madrid. If there is no rule or laws about it can there be a mutal agreement with both capitans b4 kick off?
