He doesn’t have the X Factor: Tottenham’s Lewis Holtby busks (badly) on the side of the road [Facebook]

Tottenham’s German midfielder Lewis Holtby has uploaded a video onto his Facebook page showing off his musical talents.

23-year-old Holtby, who has failed to lock down a starting berth in Andre Villas-Boas’ Spurs side this season despite some excellent performances in the league and Europa League, claimed that he wasn’t so happy yesterday until he found a guitar on the street.

Holtby wrote:

We must not lose the fun and joy … yesterday I was also not in the best mood, but then I found the guitar on the roadside … see for yourself.

Our advise to the German international is to not give up his day job.
