Usain Bolt will be undergoing a trial with German football club Borussia Dortmund, Punch reports.
The olympic gold medalist said it’s always been his dream to play for a football club, and would love to play for Manchester United.
Puma, which sponsors both Bolt and Dortmund, arranged the trial, and the 31-year-old has said if he is told he’s good enough, he’ll train harder and try for Manchester United. He said:
In March we’re going to do a trial with Dortmund and that will determine what I do with that career, which way it goes.
If they say I’m good, and that I need a bit of training, I’ll do it.
It makes me nervous. I don’t get nervous but this is different, this is football now. It’ll take time to adjust but once I play a few times I’ll get used to it.
One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United. If Dortmund say I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard,” said Bolt.
I’ve spoken to (former United manager) Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do.
