Bolt to train with A-League side Central Coast Mariners

Usain Bolt before the England v Soccer Aid World XI Old Trafford Manchester Britain

If [Bolt is] up to scratch a decision will be made on whether he's ready to play in some unusually lucrative pre-season matches - it's understood a couple of potential such games have been flagged.

Fifa 98's Usain Bolt controls the ball during an exhibition football match between France's 1998 World Cup's French football national team and FIFA 98 composed with former worldwide players, to mark the 20th anniversary of France's 1998 World Cup victory, on June 12, 2018 at the U Arena in Nanterre, near Paris.

Usain Bolt has taken a giant stride to becoming a professional footballer with the Central Coast Mariners confirming the Jamaican will join the club for an indefinite training period.

"I am very excited about coming to Australia and would like to thank the owner and management of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity", Bolt said.

The A-League club has confirmed Bolt, an eight-time Olympic athletics gold medallist, will arrive in Gosford later this month to trial with the club.

The Mariners had to work hard to secure Bolt: As recently as two weeks ago there were reports he was in talks with a United States club who was willing to offer him a contract without a trial period.

The Times noted that the couple would have to have their green cards for five years to become eligible for citizenship. Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the citizenship oath on August 9, their lawyer, Michael Wildes, confirmed to Fox News.

But that hasn't discouraged Bolt, who says he understands the task in front of him.

Bolt, 31, has already trained with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, South African club Mamelodi Sundowns and Norway's Stromsgodset.

"Our goal is to be the most innovative, entertaining and community minded sports brand in Australia, this is our competitive edge", Mielekamp added.

Though Melbourne Victory might disagree after signing star Japanese midfielder Keisuke Honda Monday.

It's a far cry from Manchester United's Old Trafford - where Bolt said playing would be "epic" and "a dream come true" - but it's a start.

I'm looking forward to the opportunity to prove that with hard work, anything is possible.
