Adrian Mutu, who once led the line for Chelsea only to be sacked for failing a drugs test, has confirmed that he is set to join rapper Snoop Dogg in his latest music video.

The Romanian, now 35, had been rumoured to be getting involved with Snoop on social media, only to then confirm the news himself via Instagram:

"Coming soon!" Mutu added. "Stay tuned!"

According to the MetroMassimo Caroletti—a director who works closely with Snoop—told journalists that Mutu has "great potential" to be in music videos and hinted he was ready to include the much-travelled forward in his next production.

Mutu was last year banned from the Romania squad for comparing the manager to comedy character Mr Bean.

Snoop himself has plenty of interest in football. 

According to an ESPN article in 2012, he fell in love with the sport after picking up a video-game version of it when he couldn't find the American football equivalent:

While we were playing the game, we were also learning about the game and started watching some games on TV. And it was the biggest sport in the part of the world we were in, so I just loved it.

In more outlandish rumours, the rapper was previously linked with buying a stake in Celtic.
