Usain Bolt might fulfilled his dream of eventually becoming a footballer after retiring from Athletics.
The Jamaica’s agent has said he is not short of suitors in the professional game.
The sprint legend who is an eight-time Olympic gold medalist, is also the first man to hold the world record for both the 100 and 200 meters respectively.
Bolt will retire from Athletics immediately after the World Championships in London, and his agent has said 12 clubs are willing to give him a trial.
“Usain is 30 and could still race for another four years and go to the 2020 Olympics but he has achieved everything he needs to achieve,” Ricky Simms told the Daily Star.
“If you ask him he will want to play football and because he has said that we have had a dozen clubs who would like him to go for a trial with them,” the agent added.
“He would hit me on the head for saying he is not going to play in the Champions League, but I don’t know realistically if he has the motivation at this stage of his life to go training with the reserves on a rainy day in Manchester or Munich or somewhere as he is a wealthy guy and has a great life.”
