Former Barca’s Afellay responds to Ryan Babel’s diss-track

While Former Liverpool winger, Ryan Babel, remains a part of the Netherlands set-up, he continues to dabble in the music scene as well.

Babel is still playing at 34 years of age for Turkish outfit Galatasaray

, while Afellay, who is a year older, hung up his boots in January after last turning out for PSV.

The duo played 13 times together for their country, with both men competing for spots on the flanks.


However, the ex-Liverpool and Ajax winger has taken potshots at Afellay and his new role as a pundit. Babel says in his new track, 

‘Open Letter’

"Bro, I don’t know you from Barca, maybe more from PSV. Oh, now you’re an analyst? Hmm, so so.

"Heard in the corridors you’re broke, bro. You call things and don’t think about them anymore bro code. But I understand if your career comes to a dead end."


Stunned to have been targeted by a one-time colleague, Afellay told 


 when asked for his reaction to the song: 

"I'm honestly surprised by it.

"I've only known him through the Dutch national team and he was always nice there. I don't have anything bad to say about him really."


Babel is into the final 12 months of his contract in Turkey and is due to drop into the free-agent pool next summer while Afellay was forced to call time on his career after suffering a number of serious knee injuries.
