Usain Bolt offered full-time Central Coast Mariners contract agent

Usain Bolt

Eight-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has been offered a professional football contract by Australian side Central Coast Mariners, says his agent Ricky Simms.

The Mariners on Monday would neither confirm nor deny making an official offer to Bolt, who has been training with them for most of the past two months.

Following the game, Mulvey attempted to deflect questions regarding Bolt's future at the club before conceding he would find it tough to break into the side.

Reports surfaced mid-game Bolt was instead in Melbourne pondering the deal, which had been tabled by Mariners boss Shaun Mielekamp.

"And that's really reflected that if Usain wants to join the club and become a footballer, he should follow a journey pretty similar to any trialist, not withstanding for a minute the amount of marketing that somebody like Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world, can bring to the Central Coast and the broader A-League". "I don't know anything about what you're talking about and that's God's honest truth". The contract was offered to him over the weekend by the Mariners, according to the news daily.

"It's great he's raising the profile of the league I suppose but I don't have an opinion on whether he's good enough or not football-wise, I haven't seen enough of him".

Bolt's camp had reportedly asked for a deal of around $3 million, but the Mariners' offer was reportedly in the vicinity of $150,000.

But some have suggested the club has offered him a full-time contract, despite a denial of any deal by Mariners coach Mike Mulvey over the weekend.

Bolt, 32, did not feature in that game as he is not registered, and even if he takes up the reported contract offer, he would need to wait until January to feature for the Mariners in the league.

"Purists would said if you have money to invest, we don't think you should put it into a trials like Usain".

'I do appreciate how important this story is for the rest of the world.
