Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has given a remarkable pep talk to his team's players, telling them they need to shoot at least 30 times a game and comparing scoring goals with getting beautiful wives.

"In every match I want to see 30 or 40 attempts on goal, at least. Just shoot from 25, 30 yards," he repeated to Wales Online.

"The law of averages says the more you shoot, the more you'll score. If you shoot 30 times you'll get three goals, 40 times will be four goals, 50 times and you'll get five goals."

But Tan wasn't finished there: "Have you seen ugly men walking around with a very beautiful wife? Well that's because they've asked 30, 40, 50 times before getting a yes. On the other hand, you'll see a handsome man ask once, get a 'no' in response and that's it. So the more you try, the more success you'll have."
