The Jamaican atletieklegende Usain Bolt has Tuesday morning his first training finished for the Australian soccer club Central Coast Mariners. Bolt did so, at precisely his 32nd birthday, with great interest. The spurtkoning hopes to be in Australia his first professional contract in football to enforce. He is, however, not to jinx.
“I need it step for step,” said the eight times olympic champion, who already meetrainde at the German Borussia Dortmund, the South African Mamelodi Sundowns and the Norwegian Strømsgodset, after the short relax oefenstond. “I approach it just like on the track. The first training is always heavy. You know how much work you still have to resist. I felt good today. I know that it requires time, but I’m ready to drive to work. Also when I was still an athlete was all about me called, but I’ve always proven that people were wrong and that I now want to do this again.”
Also, Mariners coach Mike Mulvey looked forward to the cooperation with the Bolt, but didn’t want to say that he is also at the club will remain. “We are not going to immediately make a decision about his future. It was his first day today, he was a little nervous. But it is a fantastic athlete and we are very pleased to welcome him here with us. He would be a good reinforcement in the striker or on the wings, but in the first instance, I would like to ask to treat him like all the other players.”
