IOL bolt 1 Gallo Images Jamaica's Usain Bolt.

He’s conquered the world again, run the fastest Olympic race of all time and proved all his doubters wrong. Now Usain Bolt wants to go a ridiculous step further.

“People think I am joking when I say that I would like to play for Manchester United,” said the Jamaican. “But if Alex Ferguson called me up and said, ‘OK, let’s do this, come and have a trial and see if you are good enough’ — it would be impossible for me to say no.

“I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough.

“I’m a very accomplished player and know I could make a difference. I’d be the fastest player, but I can play as well. I feel that I really helped Cristiano Ronaldo become a more complete player.’

Well, if you can’t get Robin van Persie, Fergie…

Bolt has already dabbled in football, giving sprint training to Ronaldo during pre-season at United a few years ago. – Daily Mail
