Bolt To Be Handed Borussia Dortmund trial As he Aims To Be “One Of The Best”

Borussia Dortmund are serious about their plans to offer sprinting legend Usain Bolt a trial with the club.

Bolt retired from athletics following the World Championships in August and has spoken of his interest in trying his hand at the beautiful game.

And the club’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, has once again opened the door for Bolt to come and join up with the German outfit.

‘Our word is our bond’, he told Reviersport. ‘I will meet [Puma CEO] Bjorn Gulden this week. And that’s on our list.’

Both the Dortmund and the 31-year-old are sponsored by sportswear giant Puma.

Bolt was in Austin for the weekend’s US Grand Prix and reaffirmed his desire to swap the track for the football pitch.

‘It’s a personal goal, I don’t care what people really think about it,’ Bolt told reporters at the US Grand Prix on Sunday.

‘I am not going to lie to myself, if I feel I can’t do it, I am going to say ‘Forget this’. I am not going to embarrass myself.

‘It’s a dream, it’s another chapter of my life that I really want to do. If you have a dream or something you really want to do, you want try to see where it could go.’

‘My hamstring is just keeping back right now, in two weeks I can train again and get back to some shape, then I can really explore that situation,’ Bolt said.

‘They (Borussia Dortmund) said the invitation is always open, so it is all about me getting over my injury and into shape. Then I can explore it and do the trials and see what level I am at.

‘For me it’s just to try to see if I really can be one of the best, anything I am doing, I’ll try to do it at my best.’
