In 2018, track and field legend Usain Bolt, after retirement, tried to secure a football contract.
Reports at the time suggested the deal is worth $150,000 for the season — nowhere near the $3 million that Bolt’s management is said to have initially discussed. The club had dismissed the contract value as incorrect.
Bolt didn’t sign a contract, and now, almost two years later, spoke about the time spent with the Australian club.
“I think I didn’t get a fair chance,” Bolt said in an exclusive interview with Wide World of Sports.
In one of his games, Bolt scored two goals for Central Coast Mariners to beat Macarthur South West 4-0 in a preseason friendly.
Bolt didn’t give a direct answer to if he regretted his stint with the club.
“The fact that it didn’t work out I do think about it, but as I said, it’s one of those things you’ve got to move past.”
Bolt said, despite several people asking if he wants to go back into football, he is now spending time with his daughter.
He said, “after the time period has passed, I’m like you know what, I’m getting old, let’s just retire, and I now have my daughter, so she keeps me busy.”
