As a player who played the game with rhythm, the Brazilian is reportedly keen on beginning a career in music. The FC Barcelona legend often takes to his social media accounts to post videos of himself singing and dancing, and even creating music with live bands.

Dimitar Berbatov – Art

Regarded as slow by many, Dimitar Berbatov's creative prowess on the pitch made up for the lack of pace he possessed. His creativity does not stop there, though, as he is considered an astute artist away from the field.

The Olympique Lyon winger has a talent of a different kind after revealing his rapping skills in a freestyle video in 2017, and later, in celebration of hitting the five million followers mark on Instagram, he took to his social media pages to show off his wordsmith abilities with another song, called 5-mill.
