Usain Bolt could finally realise dream of becoming a professional footballer

Usain Bolt could finally realise dream of becoming a professional footballer

According to the Australian Daily Telegraph, Bolt is close to signing on for a six-week trial period with the club and could earn a longer deal that lasts the duration of the 2018/19 A-League season if he suitably impresses down under.

The paper also claim that Bolt will sign a short "marquee" contract which A-League chairman Greg O'Rourke is hoping will boost dwindling attendances and viewing figures going into the new season.

Rallis is now in the United Kingdom and has been dealing directly with Bolt's representative Ricky Simms, who he says is fully supportive of the idea.

Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt is in talks for a trial to play football in Australia, his agent says.

FFA has declined to comment, but it's understood the governing body will not put funds towards a trial under any circumstances.

No contract is guaranteed for Bolt, who retired from the track after the 2017 World Championships and has previously expressed a desire to play professional football.

Mr Mielekamp said the club was optimistic that the trial could be extended.

Following the unsuccessful relocation, however, that figure has shrunk significantly. The surviving rhinos are under watch and further relocations have been suspended.

Bolt holds world records over 100m and 200m but he retired from sprinting a year ago after becoming a global star as the world's fastest man during a glittering athletics career.

Bolt is a fan of Manchester United and one of its former assistant managers, Mike Phelan, is now at the Mariners.

Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp addressed speculation that the Bolt deal was a publicity stunt with Newcorp.

"If he comes in and he is not up to the level, it could have a detrimental effect".

"Apart from him obviously being extremely fast the feedback we have received from Germany and Norway is that he is a very good learner and shows dramatic improvement after every training session", Mielekamp said.

"He's got a very good left foot and only time will tell what level he's at, and does that fit the A-League", he added.
