Even though he is still kicking a football for Hartlepool United whilst coaching Newcastle United's under-11 squad, Nobby Solano still has time to bash out a few notes on his trumpet.

The self-confessed adopted Geordie, Solano has been playing the musical instrument as a boy and after a period of malaise returned to playing music when he signed for Newcastle.

Speaking to the Northern Echo, he talked about his love of music, how it is his "passion outside of football".

"In my profession we have a few hours training on a morning and the rest of the day is quite long - most people work longer hours," he said.

"So I try to do something to stay away from football to help me relax and get away from football all day every day. My passion was playing the trumpet, so I get friends outside football, musicians and the like to help me not think about football all the time."

In an interview with the Independent, the Peruvian footballer revealed how he'd take his trumpet into the training ground at Newcastle and tease his fellow footballers with his music.

He is currently in a band called Geordie Latinos.
