“I didn’t get a fair chance when I tried to be a footballer,” he said

Usain Bolt says the world’s fastest man has not been given a fair chance while trying to become a footballer in Australia. Olympic gold medalist sprinter Usain Bolt tried to enter the world of football after retiring from running, and underwent a short-term trial in 2018 with the Australian club Central Coast Mariners, but was not signed. He scored two goals in a friendly for the Central Coast Mariners. Negotiations later took place with Malta Club Valetta, but no agreement was reached.

“I do not think there was a fair chance. I was not allowed to do what I wanted to do. But I think I can play good football. This is one of the things I missed. We just have to move on, ”said Usain Bolt. Former Jamaican short runner Usain Bolt is a huge United fan.
