During his dynamic days on the track and field, Usain Bolt made history in the world on various events with his ‘lightning’ speed. In the wake of receding from the olympic games, he chose to go into football. So in 2018, the 33 year old Olympic and world record holder went on a trial with Central Coast Mariners based in Gosford, on the Central Coast of New South Wales.
He was extremely peppy to be one of the best footballers just like when he was in his sprinting shoes. Sadly, things didn’t go the manner in which he anticipated. As indicated by him, he was in cheerful mood to exceed expectations at Central Coast Mariners and potentially proceed onward from that point to higher clubs, but unfortunately, he didn’t get a reasonable possibility.
He is of the view that, he didn’t do it how he wanted to do it. He disclosed to Wide World of Sports in an interview. Regardless of scoring twice in friendlies, Bolt failed to earn a contract with the A-League side and was also unable to secure a professional deal with Malta side Valletta.
As an enthusiastic admirer of football, it’s crippling for him but it’s only one of those things, therefore simply want to proceed onward. Obviously, he thinks about it once in a while, yet he has gotten over it.
According to him, he even got calls from friends and family requesting that he return to football, but feels the time has gone for football. Getting old in addition to his busy times with his daughter has perhaps resigned him from playing football once more.
In the interim, Bolt said he was baffled with how the trials ended, but that he had gone past it.
