A couple months after starring in a new episode of Sneaker Shopping, acclaimed Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has opened up about plans to begin a career in professional football and join Manchester United.

If Dortmund say I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard. I’ve spoken to 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.”
