Usain Bolt could play for Manchester United in charity match
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that six Olympic champion Usain Bolt could feature for the Red Devils in a charity game.
Bolt, who won gold in the 100 and 200 and 4×100 metre events at the London 2012 and Beijing 2008 Olympics, has joked that he wants a trial at United, and tried to get fans to persuade Sir Alex to sign him when he was paraded to the crowd during the club’s 3-2 victory against Fulham.
Speaking to the club’s magazine, Ferguson said “It’s interesting he says he’d like to play in a charity game,
“It could be brilliant and next year, when we play Real Madrid’s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does.
“He’s a bit of a character and a big United fan,” Ferguson added.
“The people from these small islands, like Dwight Yorke from Trinidad & Tobago, they all play football and he probably played at school level or youth level or something like that. It’d be nice to get him up here, I think it’ll be good.”
