9 time Olympic gold winner Hussein Bolt, who has always talked about switching from athletic to football is set to train with German Bundesliga side, Borrussia Dortmund. Rumours had been circulating that Bolt’s camp have been in talks with a number of top football clubs over the possibility of attending training, and Watzke confirmed in Sunday’s Sport Bild that the club have already lined up some sessions for the 30 year old Bolt.
“We’ve decided this some time ago,” Watzke said.
“Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden who is a member of our board has told us that Usain is highly interested in practising with us,” The Dortmund chief said. “For us that’s no problem. Our coach Thomas Tuchel likes the idea as well.
“Of course he won’t visit us in an important week with Champions League matches, but maybe in the pre-season. We are delighted and take this as an honour.”
In an interview on Saturday, Bolt said “we’ve genuinely been talking to people [about a professional career]”, and that he had been in contact with the German club and will “see what happens”.
He added: “For me, if I could get to play forManchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic.”
