I Am Serious About Playing Football, But Not For Manchester United

Five-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has reiterated that he is serious about taking up a professional career with football after announcing his retirement from track and field events.

The 31-year-old who spoke in a press conference at the Main Media Centre in the ongoing Gold Coast Commonwealth Games said his dream of becoming a footballer after retirement is still on.

I am more concerned about getting fit now as a footballer and I am working on those things that would make me fit into my new sport he said.

On whether he would sign for Manchester United based on speculations or a club in Australia, Bolt said he loves Manchester United but will certainly not play in United or a club in Australia.

The Jamaican further said that he started life from a low background in a Jamaican village, where he played football with gabbage, bottles and other items they could find on the streets and his decision to retire and face football is like a dream coming true.
