Back in the day, footballers weren’t quite as professional as they are now, and Arsenal’s Ray Parlour was a notable headline maker for his activities off the pitch as much as his prowess on it.
His partner-in-crime was legendary captain Tony Adams, and Parlour has recounted the hilarious tale of the time that Adams learnt to play the piano.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Parlour told how his captain had been practising for weeks and then brought an organ on an away trip and played a classic.
? “Tony started playing piano.”
? “He brought his piano to an #AFC away game, I was rooming with him!”
? “He’d been learning this song for six weeks, the song was ‘We’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain!’”
