The legend runner Usain Bolt receives an official offer from football club
The legendary runner, Usain Bolt, received a professional offer to join the Australian Central Coast Mariners Football club, said Ricky Sims.
Usain Bolt, the winner of eight Olympic gold medals, joined the Australian team recently, at a testing stage.
The 32-year-old Jamaican runner retired from last year’s athletics competitions.
“I can confirm that Usain Bolt has received an offer to contract the Central Coast Mariners club,” said Simms.
The club told the BBC Sport, it would not comment on media speculation.
Bolt scored two goals, in favor of the Mariners in a friendly match, but he was not in the team’s formation, during his first match in the Australian league season Sunday, in which he was tied with the Brisbane Ror team with their respective goals.
Asked whether the Marners team offered a professional contract on Bolt, team coach Mike Authors said: “Look at our front line today, and wondered if he could get to these centers, wouldn’t you ask? ”
“I appreciate how important this is for the rest of the world,” he said.
“You’re just talking about speculation. I don’t know anything about what you’re talking about, and that’s the truth. ”
Bolt had received a professional offer, with a two-year contract with the Maltese club Valletta, but he refused.
Bolt was trained with the German Russian Drutlund team, the South African Sun Downs, and Stramsgoodst Nruggi, before joining in a pilot phase of the Australian Mariners team in August.
