Bolt desired and dreamed to play football after retiring from 15 years athletics career in which he won eight Gold medals finally comes to pass as he signs for a football club in Africa.
The Jamaican wrote on twitter 24 hours ago hinting he had gotten a club for to play football.
“I’ve signed for a football team! Find out which one this Tuesday at 8am GMT.”
As fanatic of Manchester United, Usain Bolt longs to play for the English giants and sought for former United manager Sir. Alex Ferguson’s leverage but was told to pursue fitness.
“I’ve spoken to Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do.” Quoted Bolt.
Bolt was also slated to take part in trials organized for him by German club Borussia Dortmund later in March but based on the latest twitt from South African giants Mamelodi Sundown the 31-year-old might have to put the German deal on hold.
“In March we’re going to do a trials with Dortmund and that will determine what I do with that career, which way it goes. If they say I’m good, and that I need a bit of training, I’ll do it.” He added “One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United. If Dortmund say I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard.”
A hinting tweet from Mamelodi Sundown coupled with images confirms the arrival of the conqueror of the 100 meters the past decade.
“Football will never be the same. Find out tomorrow 8am GMT!”
In as much as the retired track and field athlete is beyond interested in football, he acknowledges feeling nervous to play the game.
“It makes me nervous. I don’t get nervous but this is different, this is football now. It’ll take time to adjust but once I play a few times I’ll get used to it.”
Bolt however is confident he will overcome the nervous feeling because he overcame a similar feeling when he started track and field event.
