With Swansea’s Leroy Fer, there is no single dull moment.
The player is a good dancer and singer, and has gained popularity for his efforts. During the club’s pre season tour in the United States, he performed Drake’s Controlla at the hotel for his teammates.
“A solid eight,” the player said he would rank score himself for the show. The footage has not been released to the public but the rendition would definitely be top notch going by his past performances. Fer was married to a lady – Xenia – two years ago. During their wedding, they put up an amazing dance routine that went viral on YouTube and social media.
When asked about the show, Fer said: “Very popular. We were playing against some clubs and even in the game players came up to me and said: ‘wow, what a wedding dance you did.’ Sammy Ameobi and Benik Afobe both said that to me during a match. And when I signed here, all the boys were like: ‘I’ve seen you on that wedding dance.’”
When asked how much time he practiced for the wedding performance, since he was in the Holland national team players that featured in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, he said: “We didn’t even practice that much. I swear, it was two times for 20 minutes. On the day, we had a slow dance first – a proper wedding dance – we were talking to each other and everybody was watching. So I said to Xenia: ‘Are we going to do this?’ And then we just looked at the DJ and he flicked the tune. No one else knew what was coming.”
The 26-year old made headlines in Holland when he partook in a rap duel with Vurnon Anita – a Newcastle Ajax player.
“We both love music, he’s really into rapping, he’s got his own studio, so we made one track with Ryan Babel [former Liverpool forward] and another football player in Holland, Michell Burgzorg – he’s a good rapper. That song went big as well,” Fer added.
