Sprint king Usain Bolt rejects Malta football offer

Share

Aspiring professional footballer Usain Bolt has rewarded the faith Central Coast Mariners placed in him by turning down a two-year contract with Maltese Premier League champions Valetta in the hope of scoring a contract with the A-League side.

What do you think about the sprint superstar Usain Bolt trying to become a professional footballer? "I can confirm Usain does not wish to pursue this opportunity in Malta".

Valletta chief executive Ghasston Slimen added: "We wish Usain Bolt all the best with his football career".

But Bolt's agent has confirmed he opted against taking up their offer.

Bolt is now training with the Central Coast Mariners in the Australian A-League but has yet to sign a professional contract with the club.

But he recognised Bolt's association with the club meant more people from around the world than ever before would be paying attention to the Mariners on-field efforts. He scored twice in his first start with the club last week.
