Usain Bolt explains what Jose Mourinho is doing wrong at Man Utd

Usain Bolt's dream to play for Manchester United one day is well known - and that's an understatement.

For years the Jamaican sprinter has reiterated his desire to pull on the famous red jersey and play at the Theatre of Dreams.

If it wasn't for the fact he's been dominating athletics for the past decade he might have already signed, although reports suggest he's soon to start training with Borussia Dortmund.

"For me, if I could get to play for Manchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic," Bolt said earlier this month, where he also revealed he plays on the wing.

In the same interview, the 30-year-old expressed delight at Jose Mourinho arriving as manager: "For me, I'm happy, I'm definitely happy [with Mourinho's appointment].

"I think it was a good choice. Mourinho's a winner. I really think so. He works hard to win titles and that's what Manchester United needs right now.

"He's building a squad and I'm looking forward to seeing much bigger players and I'm really excited by that."

Not even one month later and Bolt has completely changed his tune, with the Jamaican explaining the biggest mistake Mourinho is making at United.

Asked if he had a message for the Portuguese on CNN (see below), he said: "Stick to one team. Stick to the same eleven. Yeah [Mourinho is changing things too much], he's always changing."

Bolt makes a perfectly valid point. Mourinho has chopped and changed his starting XI on a number of occasions this season in a bid to identify his strongest side.

He's so far failed to do so, having persistently rotated between Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini in midfield and used the likes of Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial out wide.

The fact Mourinho named Bastian Schweinsteiger in his 18-man matchday squad to face West Ham on Sunday speaks volumes about how he's trying everything possible to find a winning formula.

But for Bolt, the solution is simple: pick a team and stick with it.
