Ferguson to hand Jamaican opportunity in friendly.
Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that the fastest man on the planet Usain Bolt could be set to play in a friendly for Manchester United against Real Madrid next year.
Jamaican sprinter Bolt has frequently expressed his desire to play for United and urged fans to persuade Ferguson to sign him up in an appearances on the picth before United’s 3-2 Premier League win over Fulham at Old Trafford.
And the Scot could now be ready to hand Bolt his chance to impress.
Ferguson told Inside United magazine: “Usain’s a character and a big United fan.
“But it’s interesting he says he’d like to play in a charity game. It could be brilliant, and next year when we play Real Madrid’s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does.”
Bolt, 25, has previously trained with the United squad and previously hinted that he would be prepared to leave Athletics for a spot in the Red Devils line-up.
But fans will have to wait quite some time to see the 100m and 200m Olympic Gold Medalist in action. The friendly at Old Trafford is not due to take place 3 June 2013.
