Video: Oliver Burke Has Managed to Acquire Himself a New German Accent

Scotland winger Oliver Burke is apparently settling into life in Germany well – so much so, he’s managed to pick up a faux German accent.

The exciting 20-year-old is about to complete his first full campaign in the Bundesliga, having moved to the ambitious RB Leipzig from Nottingham Forest last summer, for a fee in the region of £13 million.
