Was Bolt’s dream was to run or play the beautiful game?
2012 has been Usain Bolt’s year once again, and he’s already comfortably defending his crown as the world’s fastest man. However, the Jamaican athlete has incessantly expressed his love for Manchester United and in a recent interview with the BBC, Bolt spoke about completing a trial at the club:
“People think I am joking. But if Alex Ferguson called me up and said: ‘OKAY let’s do this, come and have a trial,’ it would be impossible for me to say no. I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough. I am a very accomplished player and know I could make a difference.”
Following this interview, Twitter addict and Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand sent the fastest man in the world a tweet offering his help to realise Bolt’s dream.
Although the footage from a preview of his recent upcoming documentary does not promise high expectation, there’s more legitimate footage to be found here. The basic skillset is clearly there, and we’ve been arguing about this amongst ourselves: Could Bolt really be a Premier League footballer?
