Usain Bolt comments on Manchester United’s struggles

Usain Bolt hopes that Manchester United’s summer signings will help the club start winning matches.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal may not want or need his help, but Usain Bolt is ready to do his part in the revival of the Premier League giants.

The world’s fastest man is a United fan and, like the rest of the club’s supporters, is not happy with how things have been going at Old Trafford so far this season.

The Red Devils have yet to win a league fixture under Van Gaal this season and were also hammered 4-0 by League One outfit MK Dons away from home in the second round of the League Cup.

However, United have made a number of top-class signings in the summer transfer window, including Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

Famous Jamaican sprinter Bolt has now suggested that he is ready to help Van Gaal.

‘It is going hard so far, but we have got some new players and hopefully they will get together and play well’, he told Sky Sports. ‘We will see what happens in the next game.

‘I need to call him (Van Gaal). I have been trying to get his number but he says: No, I am not going to give it to you. So we will see what happens’.

Of course, Bolt was just joking about calling Van Gaal or getting his number, but like all the other United fans across the world, he will be keen to see how the new signings play.

The likes of Di Maria, Falcao, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind are all expected to feature for the Manchester outfit in their Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford next weekend.

United will head into that match as the heavy favourites, but they were also expected to win against Swansea City, Sunderland, MK Dons and Burnley. And they didn’t.
