Multiple World Champion Usain Bolt has confirmed He will undergo a trial at German top-flight club Borussia Dortmund in a bid to become a Pro footballer.
The multiple Olympic and world champion Bolt admitted that he would prefer to play for Manchester United, his favourite team.
“In March we’re going to do a trial with Dortmund and that will determine what I do with that career, which way it goes,” the 31-year-old world record holder told the Sunday Express.
“If they say I’m good, and that I need a bit of training, I’ll do it.
“It makes me nervous. I don’t get nervous but this is different, this is football now. It’ll take time to adjust but once I play a few times I’ll get used to it.”
Bolt shares the same sponsor, Puma as Dortmund and the trial with the Bundesliga team has been arranged by the sportswear company.
“One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United. If Dortmund says I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard,” said Bolt.
“I’ve spoken to (former United manager) Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do.”
