Usain Bolt want to begin his football career in 2018
Usain Bolt hopes he can begin his football career in 2018, revealing that a lot of clubs had reached out to him.
The retired sprinter, an eight-time Olympic champion, has previously spoken about his desire to one day play professional football.
A Manchester United supporter, Bolt said he wanted to begin his career next year after tearing his hamstring in August.
Yes, I would love to play football now I’ve retired from track and field,
the 31-year-old Jamaican 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.
Usain Bolt finished his athletics career with eight Olympic and 11 World Championship gold medals.
