Footballer Carlos Tevez has claimed that his band could win The X Factor.
The player told The Sun that he and his brother’s band Piola Vago would love to land Simon Cowell as a mentor.
Tevez said: “I think we would stand a very good chance of winning The X Factor. It might take the British public a while to get used to our sound but it would make a change and mix the show up.
“So many bands sound the same these days, a Latin American influence would be nice. We can’t go on the show while I’m playing football but if it is still running when I retire then we will audition.”
He added: “If we got through, I would like to be in Simon Cowell’s section. He has the attributes of a top Premier League manager.
“He might not play the nice guy but if he is not happy he will let you know – that’s how top managers get the best out of players. There would be boots flying in the dressing room, but he would get results.”
