Jose Mourinho: Managerial maestro. The man who became the first football coach to win the treble of European titles, the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League. The Portuguese boss has given football some everlasting memories, whether it be on the pitch or off it with some of his iconic quotes.

But now the Roma boss has found another way to increase his popularity among football fans, by becoming a hype man and star in grime artist Stormzy’s latest music video for the track “Mel Made Me Do It.”

The internet has blown up following this collaboration, and The Sportsman quickly got to thinking about other members of the football family have experience in this arena.


Chris Waddle - Arctic Monkeys

The Sheffield Wednesday legend was a hero for Monkeys frontman Alex Turner growing up. And although he didn’t directly appear in the music video, footage of Waddle playing for Wednesday intersperses the band’s video for “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I Moved Your Chair”

Alessandro Del Piero - Oasis

Yes, that's right. The former Italian star became pally with Noel Gallagher after revealing he was a fan of the Mancunian band. He was later given a brief, blink or you’ll miss it, cameo in “Lord Don’t Slow Me Down”. 

Emmanuel Frimpong - Lethal Bizzle

Many of the younger generation will be more than familiar with the time former Arsenal player Emmanuel Frimpong appeared in Lethal Bizzle’s song “Leave It Yeah” and subsequently in the music video. The track featured the lyrics ‘Stay drenched or get Frimpong’d’.

Peter Crouch - Peace

In a bizarre opening to a music video, the Worcestershire group’s “Gen Strange” track commences with the former Stoke City centre-forward calling their singer a “f***ing emo” as he walks past.

Vinnie Jones - Westlife 

A partnership no one could ever have predicted. But as the former Chelsea star became an actor soon after retirement, almost every job was good for getting his face out there. He appears in the video for “Bop Bop Baby.”

Rio Ferdinand and Micah Richards - T2

The Leeds-born Richards vaguely knew T2 growing up through family. He and Ferdinand appear in the video for the track “Heartbroken”, with the latter seeming to take part because he was a fan.

Didier Drogba - Julia Channel

The Chelsea legend became friends with Channel after they ran around in similar circles, while the latter interviewed the striker for Live Night And Day. He appears in the music video for the song “Forever In A Day.”

Sergio Agüero - Los Leales

This band wrote a song called “Kun Agüero” and had the Manchester City legend front it. One to check out, City fans.

Lukas Podolski - Brings

The former Arsenal attacker appears in the video for the track “Hallelujah”, a complete travesty which is awkward from start to finish.

Jimmy Bullard - Gorgeous George 

Former prankster midfielder turned Soccer AM presenter Bullard appears in the video for “John Wayne Enterprise”. He’s even shown disappearing urgently into a toilet in this visual appearance.
