Usain Bolt insists football career is on the cards

Published 2 Comments

The 'world's fastest man' Usain Bolt has reiterated his desire to play for Manchester United one day after he retires from athletics.

Jamaican sprinter Bolt has never hidden his affection for the Premier League champions, and the double Olympic gold medallist is a massive football fan.

The 26-year-old wants a showdown meeting with Manchester United boss David Moyes and has dropped a huge hint in his desire for a career as a professional footballer in near future.

Bolt said in the Daily Star: “I haven’t made contact with the new boss at United.

“I’m waiting for Alex to put the meeting together, so he can let him know that Usain is pretty much part of the Manchester United team.”

The Jamaican has a mutual understanding with former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson - to grant him a chance to play for the Red Devils.

“He should just take care of me when it is time to go," he added.

Bolt, who won the 100 metres gold medal in Moscow last Sunday at the World Athletics Championships, solely wants to play for Manchester United and said he jokingly expects David Moyes to pick him once he retires as a professional sprinter.

“Football is on the cards when I retire from athletics.

“Hopefully, I can get a few charity matches in before then.”

Manchester United look good even without one of the fastest sprinters in the world though as David Moyes won his first Premier League match at the helm 4-1 against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Danny Welbeck and Robin Van Persie scored two goals each for the defending champions.
