Former Australia coach Ange Postecoglou has cast doubt on Usain Bolt’s hopes of re-inventing himself as a football player and earning a professional A-League contract at the age of 32.
The Olympic champion sprinter is undergoing trials at Central Coast Mariners in Australia’s top-flight and scored two goals in a pre-season match a week ago.
However, the Jamaican has yet to be offered a contract, and most football pundits in Australia have questioned his ability to break into the league.
“If you haven’t done it from a very small age and hone your technique and skills, (it’s) very, very difficult at a later age to switch to our sport and play at the highest level.” Ange Postecoglou says
Earlier this week, Bolt was offered a two-year deal by Valletta FC, local champions in the tiny Mediterranean island state of Malta.
