Usain Bolt claims that he wouldn't want to join Manchester United if Van Gaal was manager

How badly do Manchester United need someone with Bolt's pace at the moment?!

Remember a few years ago when legendary sprinter Usain Bolt revealed that he'd love to play for Manchester United and there was even discussion of him going on trial under Sir Alex Ferguson? 

Well, it turns out that Bolt has decided he wouldn't fancy playing for the Red Devils these days, because they're far too boring for him! 

Louis van Gaal's tactics have come under fire in recent months, with fans and pundits alike claiming that United are too boring and slow. 

And Bolt has agreed, and is so fed up of Van Gaal's dull tactics that he wouldn't fancy putting on the famous red shirt now. The Jamaican was quoted by ESPN as saying: "Well, looking at how Van Gaal is, I don't think I would ever want to be coached by him so I think I will put that on pause until we get a new coach."

We reckon United fans would love to see the pace and energy that Bolt could add to their side – especially after how slow their team has been of late.

What do you think? Would you like to see Bolt join United if Van Gaal goes? We reckon they'd sell an absolute truck-load of shirts with his name on.
