Wout Weghorst's Man Utd initiation will be special as footage of him singing Ne-Yo goes viral

Wout Weghorst's Man Utd initiation will be special as footage of him singing Ne-Yo goes viral

So why can't I turn off the radio?

Manchester United fans believe Wout Weghorst's initiation has the potential to be the best in club history after listening to him sing Ne-Yo's smash-hit 'So Sick'.

United completed the surprise loan signing of Weghorst on Friday evening to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo's departure in November.

The 30-year-old offers a new option up front for Erik ten Hag, having cancelled his season-long loan to Besiktas from Burnley. He'll also offer some cracking dressing room entertainment.

What you likely won't know about Weghorst is he's got a powerful pair of lungs on him. Check out footage of him belting out a tune during his time at Wolfsburg below.

Filmed by Maxence Lacroix, Weghorst passionately sings the R'n'B classic as his teammates wave their phones in the air.

If there's a way to endear yourself to your new supporters, it's proving you've got the confidence to produce a sensational karaoke choice.

He'll have some competition in the United dressing room. Scott McTominay earned praise in 2019 after his rendition of Bill Withers classic 'Ain't No Sunshine' circulated.

The clip of Weghorst has gone viral on social media, with users already deciding he's their new favourite United player.

One person said: " If ever there was a way for us to love him before he’s kicked a ball it was this!"

Another tweeted: "Bro can hit those high notes. Haaland could never."

Someone added: "Can your striker sing like this? I didn't think so."

While a fourth admitted: "Strap yourselves in I think we've got a new favourite player."

Weghorst was reportedly desperate to play a role in United's rebuild under Ten Hag. Speaking in his first interview as a United player, he said: "[It's] good for me. Also, to be honest, I think it’s the right moment as I feel as a footballer - I’m 30 years old now.

"I also already have experience in the Premier League - that was not as successful as I hoped - and I am really waiting and looking forward to getting back here because, in my opinion, it is still the biggest competition in the world and now I’m going to play for one of the biggest clubs in England.

"For me, [to play for] the biggest club is, of course, amazing, and as I’ve always said as a football player, and also as a human being, the stage I am at now, the [experience] that I have, I am ready for it.

"This is the right moment to take on this great challenge, of course."
