He is a fan of Manchester United and also attended their UEFA Champions Legaue 2011 final. To the world this maybe a joke, but Bolt looks quite serious in this matter. United’s defender, Rio Ferdinand has offered help to Bolt and aims to convince Sr Alex Ferguson to tAke his trials. This came from Rio as a reaction to Bolt when he told The Sun that he would be over the moon if Sir Alex called him for trials.
Bolt said: “People think I am joking. But if Alex Ferguson called me up and said: ‘OK let’s do this, come and have a trial,’ it would be impossible for me to say no. I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough. I am a very accomplished player and know I could make a difference.
“I would be the fastest player in the team – but I can play as well. I am in Britain for a few more days. If Alex Ferguson wants to give me a call he knows where I am.”
United’s Rio Ferdinand tweeted Bolt: “If you want that trial at Man Utd shout me, I’ll speak to the boss!! Well done in 100m.” Bolt replied: “After the Olympics we work on that…lol..thanks man.” Bolt later told BBC 5 Live: “Rio’s going to set the meeting up and I’m going to talk to [Sir Alex].” After setting a world record in 100m, Bolt still has to compete for 200m and 4x100m relay race.
