Making the new guys perform a song of their choosing has long been a tradition at Chelsea and no one is exempt. So during a team meal, World Cup winner Cesc Fabregas had to stand on a chair and sing a song. And to show his absolute fearlessness, he chose the Macarena. And he also did the dance along with it, because that's how you gain the respect of new teammates who best remember you as the captain of Arsenal.

Here's Cesc standing on a chair and proudly doing the Macarena along with team doctor Eva Carneiro and another backup dancer obscured from view (massage therapist and club prankster Billy McCulloch?)...

The little hop off of the chair showed the flair of a true showman.

Apparently doing the Macarena stirs up something deep inside Cesc, because in Chelsea's friendly against Vitesse Arnhem, he scored his first goal in blue with a lovely free kick.

Maybe Fernando Torres should start including the Macarena in his pre-match warm-ups.
