VIDEO: Swansea New Boy Roque Mesa's Initiation Performance Is Pretty Special

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

In the last few days, football lovers have been exposed to Swansea's initiation process with new recruits having to perform a song of their choice.

New striker Tammy Abraham - who signed on loan from Chelsea - was the first up and delivered a stunning performance of Boyz II Men's 'End of the Road'.

Next up was Roque Mesa, who arrived from Spanish side Las Palmas, and the 27-year-old's attempt had slightly more of a comedic value. Probably didn't help that he chose 'It's Raining Men'.

Yeah, singing probably won't be his career choice after he retires from the game. Nevertheless, his brave performance in a foreign tongue will certainly endear him to both teammates and Swans fans.

His signature 1980's style moustache simply adds to the performance, making him look as if he belongs in a music video for the song

The midfielder is touted as a shrewd investment by the Welsh club after excelling for Las Palmas in La Liga last season.
