Olympic legend Usain Bolt wants to begin his football career next year. Jamaican retired from athletics after the World Championships in London earlier this year.
He has previously revealed his dream to become a footballer once he bid farewell to the track. And Bolt, 31, wants to start the new chapter in 2018 when he has recovered from his hamstring injury.
“I would love to play football now I’ve retired from track and field,” he told FIFA.com. I’ve been talking about it in interviews and a lot of clubs have reached out. “Unfortunately, I got a bad hamstring injury in August and haven’t been able to do any training since then.
“Hopefully I will be able to play some games in 2018.” Bolt is a big Manchester United fan and was offered a trial at Championship side Burton by chairman Ben Robinson.
