Athletics legend and die-hard Manchester United fan Usain Bolt finally looks set to try his hands at professional football.
Bolt has been a very vocal Red Devil and has previously stated his desire to play for the Old Trafford outfit. And now the sprint legend looks all set to undergo a trail at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
“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.
“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.”
Usain Bolt and Borussia Dortmund share the same sponsor – Puma, and the trial with the Bundesliga outfit has been arranged by the sportswear company.
