Usain Bolt Wants To Play For Manchester United
In a rare twist of events, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has revealed his desire to don the famous Red Devil’s jersey; not as a fan, but a player! The 100m champ was captured in a video clip showing his dribbling skills as he enjoyed the game of football with his friends. In the video, the renowned sprinter is quoted saying, “Make sure Alex Ferguson sees this.” The footage was part of a documentary (Usain Bolt: Fastest Man Alive) that highlights the superstar’s rise to fame.
On a serious note, Manchester United’s defender, Rio Ferdinand tweeted that he was planning to have a word with Sir Alex Ferguson over Usain Bolt’s interest to join the club. This news created a buzz over the internet with the latest prank photos suggesting how Usain Bolt would look donning the famous Manchester United’s jersey.
The footage shows the 25- year- old sprinter lacing his playing boots in readiness for the game. But when he was asked about the fact that he’s risking injury, he explained that he wouldn’t wish his coach to see the footage until after the Olympics.
He is also quoted saying that he believes in enjoying life and that is why he decided to play soccer with his friends. The Jamaican sprint master has always declared his love for English Premier League side, Manchester United. According to The Sun Newspaper, Usain Bolt admitted that if he is called up for trials at Old Trafford, he will easily accept the offer. He was heard joking, “If I’m called upon, I will not only be a player, but the fastest of all.”
Bolt has an amazing fan base all over the world for his incredible speed on the 100m track. A Manchester United official who didn’t want to be named because he is not authorized to communicate on behalf of the club expressed his optimism that Bolt will definitely add speed to the Club’s playing unit. It will be interesting to see Bolt wearing the famous red jersey; but only if Sir Alex approves his skills.
