The former Real Madrid and Everton winger has been without a club since leaving Emirati club Baniyas in July, and with no suitable playing offers incoming, he has instead turned to music to fill his time.

The Netherlands international has previously featured on tracks for other artists, but his new single 'Paranoia' marks his debut as Roya2Faces, with the track produced by JiandroBeats.

At 29, Drenthe still has plenty of playing years in him, but it seems for the time being he is going to be concentrating on spitting rhymes rather than bamboozling full-backs.
