I didn’t get fair chance in football – Sprint king Bolt

first_img Asked if he had any regrets about his attempted career shift, he replied: “I do think about it sometimes that it didn’t work out the way that I wanted it to, because football is something that I love. “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.” Earlier this year, Bolt and his partner Kasi Bennett became parents to a baby girl and he said he was content with life, despite disappointment at not becoming a footballer.

The Jamaican, an eight-time Olympic champion, tried out with the Central Coast Mariners in 2018 after quitting athletics, hoping to fulfil a childhood dream to become a soccer player. His quest garnered worldwide attention, which intensified when he scored two goals in a pre-season friendly. But his abilities were questioned, notably by former Ireland striker Andy Keogh who said he had a “touch like a trampoline”, and contract talks failed. Bolt told Australia’s Channel Nine television network: “I think I didn’t get a fair chance. “I didn’t do it how I wanted to do it, but it’s something I think I would’ve been good at,” he added. “But it’s just one of those things you miss out on and just have to move on.” Bolt, the 100m and 200m world record holder, had previously tried out with clubs in Germany, South Africa and Norway.Advertisement Promoted Content7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooDid You Know There’s A Black Hole In The Milky Way?10 Incredibly Looking Albino Animals6 Major TV Characters We Were Relieved To See Leaving The ShowCan You Recognize These Cute Celeb Baby Faces?8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise YouYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The WorldCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?last_img read more
