Usain Bolt trains with Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa

The former Olympic gold medal sprinter trained with a South African team on Monday to sharpen his skills ahead of the trial in Germany.

Ferguson said he would see what he could do.

Bolt admits the transition from athletics to football is tough, but thanked the club for the opportunity to train with the squad.

The fastest man ever to race the tracks has since retired from his athletics career and has made no secret of his desire to play professional football soon.

"I have always played football, but cricket was my first love", Bolt said. He confirmed: "I have trials with Borussia Dortmund".

Bolt has been sharpening his football skills with South African club Mamelodi Sundowns this week and, according to midfielder Percy Tau, scored a goal during the practice session.


"I was just telling the coach that when I go back to Jamaica, I need some training".

Dortmund are now enduring a hard period in the Bundesliga.

"On a serious note, though, if you need a striker, I'm the guy", he said. I used to be in goal when I was in primary school. "I used to be a goalkeeper actually when I started out".

"One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United".

"I worked hard, stayed dedicated and stayed true to what I wanted", said the charismatic star, who retired from competition a year ago with his 100m and 200m world records intact. I've spoken to [former United manager Sir] Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word.

"I talked to him when he landed on Friday and I said to him I would be in Joburg so I would probably see him when he comes to Joburg", Simbine said.
