Bolt secures trial with Borussia Dortmund

Bolt secures trial with Borussia Dortmund

He says he is keen to pursue a career in football and is due to have a trial with the German club Borussia Dortmund in March, which has been organised through his sponsor Puma, which also backs the Bundesliga team.

Two peas from the same pod? "He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do", said Bolt. Now, a date has finally been fixed.

"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", the 31-year-old world record holder told the Sunday Express.

Nope. The eight-time Olympic gold medalist has his sights set on playing for his favorite club, Manchester United. I don't normally get nervous, but I wonder whether I can make it. Although he'll require a different kind of stamina for a career in football.

"I'll need time to adapt but after a few played games I'll be used to it, it's been like that for athleticism".

The track and field legend stands at 6-foot-5 and would immediately be Manchester United's fastest - and tallest - player.

Bolt himself is a long-time fan of Manchester United and even said once he would quit track and field if United signed him. "If Dortmund say I'm good enough, I'll crack on and train hard", he said. I have spoken to Alex Ferguson about this, but we have to wait and see what happens now. Getting used to the crowd, people and everyone around and it falls into place.

Bolt and United legend Ryan Giggs.

If Bolt does get a shot someday, it would probably be in a friendly, if anything.

Bolt continued: "I do think I have a chance".

He added: "I watch a lot of football, I understand it, I play it. With training, I could be good". "I'm not content to be average", Bolt told the Express. "I want to be the best".

"I personally want to play on the wing but I know, listening to everybody and talking to footballers, that I will be put up top".

Manchester United FC is one of the biggest teams in the world and a lot of renowned celebrities follow them with a passion. I don't miss the sprint training. "I dream about going on Old Trafford's pitch, maybe playing on a side".
