Will Usain Bolt be playing A-League Football next year?

If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck it’s probably a duck. In this case, it’s probably not a duck.

As far as lifetime achievements go, eight gold Olympic medals is a pretty damn good start. But, as far as Usain Bolt is concerned, this isn’t quite enough. The fastest man in the world is now trying his hand at football. Now, we know this isn’t exactly breaking news. The first we heard about it was back in March when Bolt began trialing at Borussia Dortmund, but, since then the sprinter’s insatiable appetite for competition has led him to begin a trialing in Australia’s premier soccer competition the A-league.

Usain Bolt’s management team have been negotiating a trial at the Central Coast Mariners for the past couple of months. Initially, it would only be a trial but if all goes well both parties are keen to see the worlds fastest man in the yellow and navy jersey. As exciting as this is, it’s far from being set in stone. If the trial is to result in a contract deal, it hinges on almost $1 million in funds from the Football Federation Australia.

We’re no experts in football, but this is where the whole arrangement smells a little fishy. No matter how many gold medals Bolt has won, it’s unlikely the FFA will have the budget to accommodate him.

Australia has seen more than its fair sure code hoppers in the past. With the likes of Isreal Folou and Jarryd Hayne finding differing levels of success in other sporting endeavours. However, soccer is uncharted territory.

The hum-drum of Bolt possibly moving down under, comes with little consolation for the real news in Australian football. Tim Cahill’s illustrious international football career is coming to an end. In our humble opinion, the 38-year-old closes the curtain on the world stage as the best Socceroo of all-time.
