Man Utd fan Usain Bolt excited by Borussia Dortmund trial

An eight-time Olympic gold medalist is looking forward to having the opportunity to showcase his football ability with the Bundesliga outfit

Usain Bolt is excited about his trial with Borussia Dortmund in March as the sprinting great looks to pursue a football career.

An eight-time Olympic champion, the 31-year-old retired last year after an incredible career that also included 11 world titles.

Bolt said he was looking forward to his trial with Dortmund before making a decision on whether he had a career in football.

"That is something that I want to do, as you said I have trials with Borussia Dortmund so that's something that is on the table," he said.

"After the trials, then I can determine if it makes sense to do it or it doesn't make sense. That's what the plan is."

Dortmund have battled in the Bundesliga this season, sitting sixth in the table and 19 points behind leader Bayern Munich.

Bolt would be a surprise addition to their ranks, but the sprint star has long expressed a desire to get into football.

He is now chasing that dream, and has already offered his services to David Beckham's new MLS franchise in Miami.

Bolt said after seeing the former England captain announce his expansion plans: "On a serious note, if you need a striker, I'm the guy. If you need goals, I'm the guy. I got you."
