Usain Bolt: Would not want to play for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United

Usain Bolt has joked he will put his dream of playing for Manchester United on hold as he would never want to be coached by Louis van Gaal.

Bolt has said in the past that United should offer him a trial at Old Trafford, telling MUTV last year: “In my mind I think I should do a trial and see if they would say ‘Alright, come on in’ or if they would say ‘No, you are not any good.’

“I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play.”

Now, though Bolt has gone cold on the idea having been left unimpressed by the coaching methods of Van Gaal.

“Looking at how Van Gaal is, I don’t think I would ever want to be coached by him, so I think I will put that on pause until we get a new coach,” Bolt told reporters at the Jamaican Sportsman of the Year awards, when asked about his football ambitions.

Bolt had previously visited United’s Carrington training ground when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge, even giving Cristiano Ronaldo some spiriting advice.
