Bolt begs Sir Alex to get him a Man United trial as he lifts the Europa League trophy

Date Posted,August 25, 2017

Usain Bolt didn’t get the farewell from athletics he wanted this summer – but he is already planning a back up career.

The massive Manchester United supporting Jamaican turned up at Old Trafford to watch his favourites clash take on Leicester just two weeks after hanging up his running spikes.

Before the match, Bolt bumped into United legends Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton for a couple of photos.

And while talking to 13-time Premier League winning manager Ferguson he asked to be handed a trial to prove his worth in Jose Mourinho’s squad.

It is unknown whether his request was granted, but Bolt has already been spotted lifting both the Europa League and the EFL Cup – the two trophies Mourinho’s men managed to pick up last season.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist then took his place in the stands to watch his beloved club face the Foxes.

Bolt, who has previously training with the Red Devils, told MUTV: “I would have loved to play for United.

“I was saying to Fergie to pull a few strings and get me a trial.

“It was fun when Alex was in charge I went down.”

Bolt was due to play for United’s legend side to face Barcelona next month.

But after damaging his hamstring during his last ever race – the 4x100m relay at the London Stadium where he pulled up on the final straight – he was forced to pull out.

He revealed he faced three months of rehabilitation to fix a hamstring tear.
