On Sunday it was revealed that the fastest man on the planet has a deep desire to play for the best football team in the entire world- Manchester United.
Thats right- Mr Usain Bolt said to press that he would like to try his hand at professional football when he eventually decides to retire from athletics and being generally quite superhuman that he would be honoured to play with alongside his heroes at Man U.
Bolt has this to say to French television station Canal +:
“I’d like to try to become a professional (footballer) at the end of my career,” “I’ll stop athletics at the age of 30. If I could have the chance to play for a team, even for one of the smallest teams in the English Premier League or a lower division, just to see if I can do it.”
“I’ve wanted to play for a long time. I’d like to try and see if I could be good.” “Playing with (Wayne) Rooney and his team-mates would be an honour for me,” he said.
“When I met them for the first time, I was very honoured. The surprise was that they knew who I was. It was magnificent for me. Magnificent.”
The world record holder at 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay says he could see himself playing in midfield or as a striker.
“But lots of people say I should play as a winger,” he added, “because I’m quick.”
Now I havent personally seen him play any football before but if he wants to come to United I’ve got one thing to say- Sign him up, Fergie Fergie sign him up!
