If there are two things we all know about Usain Bolt it is that he can run pretty quickly and he supports Manchester United. But, at least for now, one of those is no longer true.

That is according to the man himself. He admitted that he has decided to "pause" his affection towards Manchester United until Louis van Gaal leaves the club.

The Dutch manager has divided opinion amongst the Old Trafford faithful this season, although at one point or another almost all would have been hoping to see him sacked.

Results have been far from disastrous in recent weeks, but their uninspiring performances – especially in attack – have irked a fanbase brought up on gung-ho football.

An inglorious exit from the Champions League coupled with copious amounts of 0-0 draws has forced Bolt to put his fandom to one side.


As quoted by ESPN, Bolt told reporters at the Jamaican Sportsman of the Year awards: "Well, looking at how Van Gaal is, I don't think I would ever want to be coached by him so I think I will put that on pause until we get a new coach."

Considering it's an Olympic year, he can probably do with the stress of supporting Alex Ferguson's former club. One week they appear to be falling away from top four contention, the next they are Premier League title contenders.


Indeed, their fortunate 1-0 win over Liverpool took them within seven points of current leaders Arsenal and Van Gaal himself admitted his team could still catch them.

"Today is very important because our competitors have lost points," said the 64-year-old. The gap is seven points. We can overcome that so that's what I'm thinking about. "
