Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt is set to join Australian A-League side Central Coast Mariners for an indefinite training period.

Bolt has never hidden his dream of playing professional football, having dominated athletics before retiring.

The triple Olympian has also previously had training spells at Borussia Dortmund, Mamelodi Sundowns FC and Strømsgodset.

And he is now very close to realizing his dream of playing professional football after Central Coast Mariners announced he will join the club for an indefinite training period.

 

"The Central Coast Mariners can today confirm that Usain Bolt has committed to an indefinite training period with the Club, with the aim to develop the ‘world’s fastest man’ into a professional footballer,” the club said in a statement.

"The agreement between the Central Coast Mariners and Usain Bolt does not guarantee a professional playing contract but does provide the eight-time Olympic gold medallist with an opportunity to achieve his burning desire to play football professionally.”

Reacting to the news, Bolt said he is excited to have been given such an opportunity by the A-League club.

According to him, it has always been a dream to play professional football.

"I am very excited about coming to Australia and would like to thank the owner and management of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity.

"It has been my dream to play professional football and I know that it will involve a lot of hard work and training to get to the level required to play and make an impact in the A-League.

"When I spoke to the Head Coach Mike Mulvey on the phone he outlined the ambitions of the club and his plans for the upcoming season. I hope I can make a positive contribution to the club and look forward to meeting the other players, staff and fans in the coming weeks.

"I always say that ‘anything is possible, don't think limits’ and I look forward to the challenge,” he added.
