Usain Goal? Bolt May Play In Charity Game For Manchester United Against Real Madrid

As if being the world’s fastest man wasn’t enough, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt may be taking his talents to the pitch in a charity game for Manchester United of the English Premier League.

Bolt, who won three gold medals in three events (100m, 200m, 4 x 100m relay) in the 2012 London Olympics, is a huge fan of the Red Devils and has wanted to become a part of the club for some time now. While that is close to impossible, this will be an opportunity for Bolt to show off his skills against the legends of Real Madrid.

Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of United, has mentioned to the media that Bolt has worked with Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo on his sprinting, as well as his wagers on Bolt during the Olympic Games.

Personally, I think that Bolt could absolutely hack it in international football. If put in the right situation and allowed to fly up and down the wings, he could do a lot of damage (provided that he knows, or could learn, how to deliver a decent cross). Imagine if he learned how to cross the ball into the box with his speed and Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie waiting for it? That could be potentially deadly.

At the very least, the Jamaican national team should give him a shot during World Cup qualifying. It’s not as if they are going to make the 2014 tournament in Brazil anyway.
