Towards a conversion of Usain Bolt into footballer? Everything seems to indicate that the fastest man in the world could become a football player. In any case, the coach of the Jamaica thinks seriously. Indeed, Winfried Schäfer, the national coach of the football team of Jamaica, said in the local newspaper The Gleaner that he wanted to enlist the sprinter in the future.
“After the 2016 Games, I want to see Bolt on my training ground, said the technician. He is a Jamaican and I want him in the national team. This is our goal. Maybe after the Olympics in Brazil, I would like to see him in our team. This is what I’ll tell him.”
“We will improve him, says Schäfer. He is fast and if he learns to play well with the ball he can become one of our best players. If we went on a counter-attack, nobody should be able to stop him. This is the goal. “
Remarks immediately relayed by the sprint star on his Instagram account: “Everything is possible.”
Usain Bolt, 27, world record holder in the 100 (9.58) and 200m (19.19), has already said he wanted to play football after his athletic career “in preference at Manchester United.”
