2012 Olympics: ‘Sprint star’ Bolt reiterates desire to play for ‘much loved’ Man U
London: The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, has reiterated his desire to play for his English Premier League club Manchester United, and believes he could be a good footballer too.
Bolt said if United boss Sir Alex Ferguson called him for trials then it would be impossible for him to say no, and added that he thinks he has the qualities to become a successful footballer.
“People think I am joking, but if Sir 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,” The Daily Mirror quoted Bolt, as saying.
“I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough. I am a very accomplished player and I know I could make a difference. I would be the fastest player in the team - but I can play as well,” he added.
