He’s best known for scoring goals at Dens Park.
But former Dundee FC star Fabian Caballero is now hoping to win votes as he embarks on a new career as a politician.
The 37-year-old had two spells for the Dark Blues between 2000 and 2005, becoming a cult hero among fans.
But the former striker is now up for election in Paraguay and hopes to be voted in as a councillor in capital city Asuncion.
He said: “I am standing for election in Asuncion and hopefully enough people will vote for me to get into office.
“It is definitely a big change from playing football in Scotland with Dundee, but is something I always wanted to do.
“I have always had a desire to be useful and serve my community.
“Oscar Tuma, who will become the mayor, asked me to join his team and hopefully I will become the sporting director for the city.”
And the Argentine hopes his spell as a footballer will help him win votes, and he can help those from the poorest parts of the country.
He added: “I am standing under the name Tyson Caballero because that is how people in Paraguay know me.
“I hope their memories of me as a football player will help me when it comes to the election.
“They know I am passionate about the city, about sport and that I will work hard for them.
“I want to build centres of sport for the poorest areas of the city and help to raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle.
“That is my biggest aim in politics, to serve and be useful in helping people become aware of their health.”
