Championship side to offer trial to Usain Bolt

Jamaica's Usain Bolt takes part in a lap of honour on the final day of the 2017 IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium in London

On top of debuting for his favourite club, Usain will be featured alongside club legends Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.

Robinson had suggested Burton would be interested in giving an opportunity to the eight-time Olympic gold medallist following his retirement from the track after the World Championships.

Whether or not Bolt is enticed at the possibility of living and working in Burton remains to be seen, as does his participation in an upcoming Manchester United Legends game against Barcelona at Old Trafford on 2nd September, given that his hamstring is now shot to shit.

But the Jamaican could be returning to the world of sport sooner than expected - as a Championship footballer.

"He's done great for his sport athletics and if you look at Adam Gemili who was in the 4x100m relay he played football when he was younger".

"This has been his dream for many years".

Bolt has always been a Red Devils fan and at various times has talked up his ambition to play professional football. "He's desperate to do it as long as he can get over the injury", a source told the website.

"At any level, I just want to see if I'd be any good, because I play football all the time with my friends and I think I'm at a good level.
It's something I'll be good at".

When asked about his immediate aims, he said, "The first thing I'm going to do is have some fun".

The 30-year-old Jamaican suffered a hamstring injury in his final race at the World Championships in London, earlier this month. "There is nothing in it as far as I am concerned", Clough said.

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough has dismissed suggestions that the Brewers are set to give retired athlete Usain Bolt a trial with the club.
