WATCH: Arsenal Star Butchers The Champions League Anthem

After signing for Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011, Hector Bellerin has quickly confirmed his status as a fan favourite for his last ditch tackles and electrifying pace on the big stage.

The speedy Spaniard is the not the first footballer to fatefully step up to the mic, listen to a few of these beautiful renditions:

Wayne Rooney
