David De Gea shows his hidden talents by playing drums

David de Gea swapped his goalkeeping gloves for drumsticks as he showed off his hidden talent by playing the drums in a new adidas advert for Manchester United.

De Gea just didn’t bang them randomly but showed he’s got a sense of rhythm and timing, finishing the short solo with full confidence.

In a post on his official Instagram account, the 26-year-old declared, “Nicko McBrain, Lars Ulrich, Arin Ilejay, Dave Grohl, Charlie Watts… and DDG.”, DDG being de Gea’s initials.

The “Here To Create” commercial by adidas featured a number of United stars in a whole new avatar including Paul Pogba, Jese Lingard and Daley Blind .
