Ever since he helped out Cristiano Ronaldo with his sprinting technique when the Portuguese striker was at Manchester United, the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, has expressed a wish to play for the Red Devils.
Some within the club even reciprocate his wish, with defender Rio Ferdinand leading the clamor for Bolt to pull on a red shirt and turn out for the Premier League champions.
Well finally, we and Rio are gonna get our wish!
That’s right. Usain Bolt will apparently take his place alongside United’s current greats in Rio’s testimonial against Sevilla on August 9.
It must have taken a lot for Rio to convince new boss David Moyes to sign Bolt up for one game only, but it will certainly put all eyes on Old Trafford to see whether Bolt’s soccer skills can match his sprint speed.
