Football and music are not always the best bedfellows. While the songs of supporters up in the stands is one of the best aspects of attending a live match, when professional musicians wade in and get their mitts on football related material the results sometimes leave a little to be desired.
Here are five songs about footballers:
Len ShackletonThe great Len Shackleton, a star for Sunderland in the 1950's and the self styled "Clown Prince of Football", had a song named after him in 2002 by Chumbawamba called Song for Len Shackleton. Like much of Chumbawamba's songs that weren't called "Tubthumping" it's more than a little dodgy.
Hansi MüllerHansi Müller, a West German international in the early 1980's who played his club football for VfB Stuttgart and Inter was celebrated by German punk band named Die Walter Elf with the little ditty
“Hansi Müllers Schniedelwutz” – which translates as “Hansi Müller’s penis". Don't be put off by the name though, it's actually a pretty decent track.
