Famous fan Usain Bolt in inspirational Tweet to Manchester United

Usain Bolt 2

Usain Bolt has been trying to put a philosophical spin on the defeat to Liverpool this afternoon.

He is the world’s fastest man - so perhaps he could lend some of that extreme pace to his favourite team’s midfield and defence.

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt holds the world record in the 100 metre and 200 metre sprint - but he has other loves away from athletics.

A keen and reportedly talented cricketer he is also a big fan of playing and watching football.

He has even been called upon by Reggae Boyz manager Wilfried Schaefer to potentially play for Jamaica after the Olympics in Brazil.

Bolt has often expressed a desire to play for Manchester United in the future - and while we are sure his pace would be an issue - we are unsure if he has the ball control to play at Premier League level.

But Bolt is a massive Manchester United fan - and today’s defeat to Liverpool at home hurt him like it would any other Red Devil.

But he had a message for United - suggesting things can only get better.

Bolt Tweeted:


Those words are from Bolt's sprint coach Glen Mills and certainly speak volumes about United's situation. This is a club in a massive transitional stage - and in time we are sure they will return to former glories.

For now however they are moving nowhere with Bolt-like pace. The recovery is no sprint, it is a marathon - starting against Olympiakos on Wednesday.
