Everyone knows that the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt is a massive fan of football.
Bolt has always felt that his natural speed and fitness could be transferable skills that would allow him to excel at the sport. Last year he even expressed his interest in having a trial with Man Utd telling an interviewer, “In my mind I think I should do a trial and see if they would say ‘Alright, come on in’ or if they would say ‘No, you are not any good’. I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play”.
Things have changed a bit since then – after cleaning up once again at the Olympics and cementing his legacy in the world of athletics, he’s looking extend this dominance to football. Unfortunately for United fans, it doesn’t appear that they’ll be seeing Bolt bombing down the wing for them anytime soon.
Bolt has been training with Borussia Dortmund and, although Dortmund might seem like a random choice for the nine time gold medallist, it makes sense when you realise that Bolt and Dortmund are both sponsored by Puma. When the chef Executive of the club was asked about whether or not he thought that Bolt could have a future at the club he said “We don’t even need to talk about it”.
