⚡Usain Bolt has not committed to trialling with A-League club Central Coast Mariners, says the sprint king’s agent Ricky Simms.
Australian media reported the eight-time Olympic gold medalist was set to head Down Under for a six-week trial with the Gosford-based club – in the hope of winning his first professional football contract.
But the 30-year-old Jamaican’s agent says a move to Australia is far from confirmed and his client is still considering his options.
“We are looking at various possibilities for Usain in football – the A-League is one of them.” Simms told Omnisport on Wednesday.
“When a decision is made about his future, we will make it public.”
It is understood Football Federation Australia would have to chip in AU$900,000 (£510,000/$669,000) for Bolt to play in the A-League – if he trials at the Mariners and impresses enough to earn a professional contact.
