We all know Usain Bolt as the eight-time Olympic gold medallist sprinter, but can he play football?
Borrusia Dortmund apparently thinks he can and are offering him a trial in March 2018.
Bolt, who retired from athletics in August following the World Championships in London, has yet to make a decision on his future away from the track. The Jamaican, an avid Man United supporter, insists he believes he has “a chance” of becoming a professional footballer.
The Bolt tactical play goes like this: Ping the ball over the defense, let Bolt run past them and slot it past the keeper…Goal Usain Bolt !!
On paper, it’s as easy as that, but in reality, can it work?
What do you think? Does he have talent?
This is probably more of a publicity stunt for Dortmund. I’m intrigued though. He is a super athlete and speed kills in football. I would hate to be the defender chasing him all over the park.
Guess we will soon find out if he can transition from the track to professional football…watch this space!
