In September, Usain Bolt told a Facebook Live audience that he was “always thinking about playing soccer” and that he thought he would be “very awesome” at it. Apparently, that wasn’t just talk, as the sprinting superstar will reportedly get something of a tryout with a Bundesliga team.

This from Decca Aitkenhead of The Guardian:

“[Bolt] does, however, have one other ambition: after retiring from athletics, he wants to be a professional footballer. ‘We’ve genuinely been talking to people. Bolt is so competitive that he won’t even play Call Of Duty any more, because he’s not as good as he used to be and can’t bear the pain — ‘and shame’ — of losing. So I doubt he would have mentioned football unless he’s as promising a winger as he claims to be.
“He has been in touch with Borussia Dortmund’s coach, will soon train with the team in Germany for a couple of days, ‘and see what happens.’ But having always been a huge Manchester United fan, the manager he really wants to meet is José Mourinho. ‘For me, if I could get to play for Manchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic.’”

Bolt also expressed that affection for United during his Facebook Live chat. “If I had the chance to play for Manchester United, I would go right now,” he said at that time. “I would retire and start playing football right now. That’s how much I really want to play for Manchester United.”

It is unclear how good Bolt actually is at soccer, but as he mentioned in September, he does have speed in abundance. “That’s all that counts, right?” he asked. Well, there probably would be a little more required of a professional at any level, let alone the Premier League or Bundesliga, and the nine-time Olympic gold medalist didn’t appear to display exceptional ball skills in this 2012 video:

Bolt is set to retire from sprinting after the 2017 world championships in London, so he will be looking for something to do after that. It doesn’t sound  as if he’ll be trying his hand at America’s rougher version of football, although in September he said he had “gotten offers.”

“I used to watch [football] when I was younger, and the hits that the guys used to take,” Bolt said. “I know that it is not as bad now, but the hits that the guys would take kind of turned me off.”
