Usain Bolt To Play For Manchester United Against Real Madrid by mukina2: 10:43am On Sep 05, 2012
Usain Bolt set for Manchester United debut against Real Madrid
The 100m Olympic champion might have the opportunity to play for the Red Devils in a friendly against the Real Madrid legends next year according to Sir Alex Ferguson
5 Sep 2012 08:23:00
By Matt Davis

Bolt urged fans to help persuade Sir Alex to sign him up for the Red Devils team when he was guest of honour during a 3-2 victory against Fulham in the Premier League earlier in the season.

The world-record holder could get a surprise phone call from the Manchester United boss after Ferguson hinted that the sprinter's dream of playing for the club could come true.

Ferguson told Inside United magazine: "Usain’s a character and a big United fan.

"But 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."

Previously Bolt, 25, has trained with the Manchester United squad and even said that he would be willing to leave athletics for a spot in the Red Devils' team.

The game is set to be played on 3 June 2013 at Old Trafford following last year's success which saw the proceeds support Real Madrid's Foundation work currently taking place in Africa.

Let's wait and see how Bolt will do on the field of play. I hope in an attempt to run with the ball he does not leave the ball behind. ball control is very vital in football.

Athletics and football are two different sports. to run with a ball is harder than just running on a lane

He just needs encouragement. Let's see what he can offer. Well, I think his inclusion is just to help actualise his dream of being in the Red Devils' jersey. #United4life

Reminds me of Chioma Ajunwa who played for the falcons at the world cup Sweden '91, ran 100 metres for Nigeria at the Olympics in '92 and won gold medal in the long jump at the olympics Atlanta '96.

Exactly!!! While I can't vouch for Usain Bolt's skills, most athletes are multi sport talents at a young age and generally have to choose their best sport, by their teenage years, to take seriously.

There are many cases in England of good footballers, who couldn't quite make it in football, turning to athletics.

If Walcott can play at the highest level, what stops Bolt from doing the same? After all Walcott is all speed no (football) brains.
