Asamoah Gyan’s guest rap got us thinking about other ballers who have stepped up to the mic and wrecked the joint…

1. Clint ‘Deuce’ Dempsey – Deuce fronted up for Setanta to prove that, whilst he’s more Vanilla Ice than Eminem, he can actually walk the walk:

2. John Barnes – The Undisputed King of British Football Rappers, if only for this (forget ‘The Anfield Rap’):

3. Paul Gascoigne – “Sitting in a sleazy snack bar sucking sickly sausage rolls…” Eminem, your crown is secure:

4. Andy Cole – Infamous for recording the cringeworthy ‘Outstanding':

5. Didier Drogba – Promised the world a rap album, still hasn’t delivered. A f*cking disgrace, frankly…

6. Ryan Babel – The Liverpool winger/striker has flow. But his flow is rubbish:

7. Basile Boli & Chris Waddle – The pair recorded the cheery ‘We Got A Feeling’ when they were team-mates at OM:

8. Youri Djorkaeff – The former Bolton star’s rap career was brief, for obvious reasons. This is ‘Living In Your Light’ and it’s proper shit:

9. Benni McCarthy – The fat striker helped to murder ‘The Final Countdown’ as a guest rapper on this slice of aural torture:

10. Royston Drenthe – Teamed up with fellow Dutchman Ryan Babel (see above) to rap with U-Niq, and it’s actually not so bad:

I think we can all agree that MC John Barnes has the best rhymes, the best flow, the best gold chain.
