Australian club side Central Coast Mariners and Usain Bolt’s representative Ricky Simms have reached an agreement to end the Jamaican’s trial period with the club.
In a statement by Central Coast Mariners, Bolt’s “indefinite training period has drawn to an end, effective immediately.”
Recently, the Club and Bolt’s representatives have held talks with external partners to find a commercial solution that suits all parties.
Despite several promising potential partners, both Bolt & the Central Coast Mariners have amicably concluded that they will not be able to settle on a suitable deal in a timely manner, the club explained in a release.
Usain Bolt thanked the Central Coast Mariners for the opportunity to commence his football journey.
“I would like to thank the Central Coast Mariners owners, management, staff, players and fans for making me feel so welcome during my time there. I wish the club success for the season ahead,” Bolt said.
The Jamaican’s most notable outing with the A-League side was his performance in Campbelltown where he scored two goals helping the Mariners secure a 4-0 win against Macarthur South West United.
