Former sprint king Usain Bolt’s dream of playing football professionally has not been easy but he might be on the verge of realizing his dream.
A club in Malta with new owners and Champions League ambitions have tabled a two year offer for Bolt.
Bolt, who won eight Olympic gold medals (including 3 in the 100m) during his athletics career, currently trains with the Central Coast Mariners of Australia in the hopes of landing a deal with them; but that might come to an end if he decides to accept this new offer.
Bolt stole global headlines after he scored twice in his first game for Central Coast in a friendly match against lower league opposition.
After the match whilst his name was trending his agent revealed Bolt’s new offer.
The club has now been revealed as Maltese Champions Valletta FC, who were only recently taken over by cash flush investors from the UAE.
It’s now up to Usain Bolt to decided whether to take this guaranteed offer or to keep training with Central Coast in the hopes of landing a contract from them in the future.
