Usain Bolt is famously known as a Manchester United fan and has often spoken of his desire to play football. 

The current manager of Mamelodi Sundows, Pitso Mosimane, said;
"Good thing is he's a free agent! And he can play in a few positions".

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

"It was a good game, a fun day and I really enjoyed it. I told the coach when I get back to Jamaica I need more training because I'm unfit. I told my friends we need to plan a trip to South Africa it's a beautiful country, I love the vibe here it's similar to Jamaica in that sense!" he said.
