Jamaican sprint ace Usain Bolt insists he can make Real Madrid new signing Gareth Bale a better player than he is.
The 24-year-old Welsh international recently moved to the Santiago Bernabeu for a staggering record-breaking fee reported to be €100million.
And Bolt, who helped Cristiano Ronaldo in sprint training, has indicated that Bale will be a better player if he can develop in his ability to handle the ball perfectly while running.
"I think Gareth is probably the fastest player in the world at the moment - but I will help him with his sprinting if he wants," Bolt is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
"It is not just about how fast you can accelerate - but also when you have the football at your feet about balance while you are sprinting as well. I helped Ronaldo with his sprinting in a training session - and look what he has go on to achieve since then.
"I have a lot of respect for Real Madrid - and if they and Gareth want my help I am happy to fly in and take a private training session with Gareth. I hear that he has been clocking speeds close to me - but it is about technique as well.
"I know I could make him an even better player than he already is."
Maybe Madrid should hire Bolt to train with Bale as the Galaticos would dominate Europe with two sprinters in the form of Ronaldo and Bale.
Meanwhile, Bale is set to make his home debut for Real Madrid this weekend against Atletico Madrid.
The world record signing was due to make his debut against Getafe but sustained a leg injury in the pre-match warm up.
