Usain Bolt has once again hinted at a new career in the world of football after posting a video of himself training in a Borussia Dortmund kit.
The 100-metre world-record holder has long desired to play for Manchester United, and now that his athletics career is over, he is devoting more time to his other love.
Bolt has already signed up for Soccer Aid in June, leading a World XI team against Robbie Williams’ England, and he has begun training for the big day.
In a video posted to his Twitter account, Bolt heads out to the pitch with friends wearing a full Dortmund kit, and even scores an impressive header during a match.
The Jamaican’s shirt has ‘Bolt 9’ on the back, hinting that he will play in an attacking role in the match at his beloved Old Trafford on June 10.
Bolt is understood to be heading to Germany to train with the Dortmund squad in the current international break, after agreeing with the club last year.
He has ambitions to become a footballer and Bolt will be afforded the chance to train alongside some of the Bundesliga’s best players.
“In March we’re going to do trials with Dortmund and that will determine what I do with that career, which way it goes,’ Bolt said. ‘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. It was the same when I started track and field.
“I was nervous for a while until I started getting used to the crowd, people and everyone around and it falls into place.
“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. I’ve spoken to 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.”
