John Barnes raps 'World In Motion' on London Underground

Liverpool fans travelling home from Satuday’s 4-0 friendly victory over Barcelona at Wembley would have been in a joyous mood.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta were blown away by Jurgen Klopp’s side just one week before the start of the Premier League campaign.

The Liverpool fans were treated to a brilliant pre-season friendly but those travelled home on the London Underground with a certain John Barnes were in for another treat.

Not only was Barnes a fantastic footballer, he was also a pretty good rapper.

The former Liverpool and England footballer rapped in the No. 1 hit 'World In Motion' by New Order in 1990 - a song that featured several members of the England World Cup squad.

But, 26 years on, it seems Barnes still has his rapping ability. Clearly being egged on by the Liverpool supporters on the crowded train, the former winger gave into peer pressure and began his rap.

Take a look at his impressive performance below:

As you can see, Barnes absolutely nails it before edging backward out of the train.

On the pitch, goals from Sadio Mane, Divock Origi, Marko Grujic - and an own-goal from former player Javier Mascherano - gave Klopp’s side a very handsome victory.

However, that wasn’t Liverpool's final friendly before the start of the league campaign as the German boss takes them to his boyhood club Mainz today. While it’s unlikely that the players that appeared to Saturday will play in Germany, Klopp will be hoping to put on a show at the club where he played for 11 years and managed for a further seven.

Watching Liverpool beat Barcelona 4-0 at Wembley and then watching Barnes produce an epic rendition of his ‘World In Motion’ rap. Not a bad day for those Kopites on the crammed train carriage.
