I didn't have a fair football trial - Usain Bolt

I didn't have a fair football trial - Usain Bolt

World fastest man Usain Bolt has spoken out about the brief spell he had in his quest to becoming a footballer.

Usain Bolt decided to go into footballer because of his love for the game after retiring from athletics and had a trial with Australia side Central Coast Mariners but it didn't go down well as he failed to secure a permanent contract.

Bolt then had another offer from Maltese club Valletta, which didn't work out also. He then later announced in 2019 there would be no further pursuit to play Professional football.

Speaking with Wide World of Sports, Bolt has now revealed how everything went down and how he felt he would have gotten a contract but couldn't.

'I think I didn't get a fair chance," Bolt said

'I didn't do it how I wanted to do it, but it's something I think I would've been good at.'

'But it's just one of those things you miss out on and just have to move on.'

'I do think about it sometimes that it didn't work out the way that I wanted it to, because football is something that I love.'

'The fact that it didn't work out I do think about it, but as I said, it's one of those things you've got to move past.'

'I've had calls of people asking me if I really want to [go back to football], but after the time period has passed, I'm like you know what, I'm getting old, let's just retire and I now have my daughter so she keeps me busy.'

Bolt has then later gone into different businesses since his retirement and also enjoying each day with his daughter.

'Being a parent now, it's different. It gives you a sense of accomplishment so I'm really happy and just excited to go on this journey,' Bolt added

'It's been just about living it and experiencing it day by day.'
