Random! Former Chelsea striker to appear in Snoop Dogg video

Adrian Mutu looks set to play a part in the American rapper’s latest release.

When you think of Adrian Mutu, a player that has eccentricity and controversy not too far away is something that springs to mind.

The latest news about the Romanian frontman, who was banned from the game and sacked by Chelsea for drug use, is that he is set to appear in a Snoop Dogg music video.

The ageing forward steps out for Petrolul Ploiesti in his homeland, but could well be set to swap his boots for a career in showbiz.

Video director Massimo Caroletti has tipped Mutu for great things after he quits the beautiful game and has stated that the eastern European is being lined up to play a role in the Snoop Dogg video.

"So far I've used other actors in the videos we've made, but I found that Mutu has great potential," the Daily Mail quotes Caroletti as saying.

"I've personally championed Adrian's inclusion, and the whole team sees him as a good candidate.

"I've known Mutu for two years and we've built a friendship that grows stronger every day. I respect him very much because he is sincere and serious person. From my point of view, his future is in showbiz."
