On Sunday, German football club Borussia Dortmund (BVB) announced Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt is to train with the club. 30-year-old Usain Bolt, a nine-time gold-medal winning , is a Manchester United F.C. supporter.
Known as "the fastest man on earth", Bolt is sponsored by German sports companywho also sponsors Borussia Dortmund. According to Dortmund CEO , Puma CEO Bjørn Gulden informed the club of Usain's interest in practising with them.
In remarks to magazine, Watzke said this was "neither a joke nor a marketing measure". He did say, "We wouldn't organise it during a period where we have a midweek game, of course, but perhaps during a preparatory phase or something like that". Watzke said BVB coach is agreeable with the idea, but the club hasn't suggested offering the Jamaican a contract.
Taking about a chance to play for his favoured club, Bolt said, "For me, if I could get to play for Manchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic."
