Usain Bolt is once again the fastest man in the world after winning his second gold medal in the Olympic 100 meter final in London on Sunday, but he says he wouldn’t pass up the chance to play for Manchester United.
From The Sun:
“People think I am joking. But if Alex Ferguson called me up and said, ‘OK 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.
“I would be the fastest player in the team — but I can play as well.”
The 6ft 5in Jamaican added: “I am in Britain for a few more days. If Alex Ferguson wants to give me a call he knows where I am.”
Rio Ferdinand of Manchester United tweeted Bolt saying: “If you want that trial at Man Utd shout me, I’ll speak to the boss!! Well done in 100m.”
Bolt replied: “After the Olympics we work on that…lol..thanks man”.
More than 20 million viewers watched Bolt run to victory in the 100m final on Sunday.
