Agent says Usain Bolt has contract offer
Usain Bolt’s agent claims that his client has received an A-League contract offer from Central Coast Mariners after spending more than two months on trial with the Australian club.scored twice in a Mariners exhibition last week. Now, his agent says he’s been offered an official contract — quotes from the AP:
Mike Mulvey, the Mariners manager, not only claims to be unaware of any such offer, but sounds rather dubious and unenthusiastic about the prospects of Bolt being a first-team player.
“You have a look at our front line today and you wonder whether he could get into any of those positions, wouldn’t you? I do appreciate how important this story is for the rest of the world.
“You’re just talking about speculation, I don’t know anything about what you’re talking about and that’s the honest truth.”
…“We’re going to go back, have some dinner, have a little look at the game that’s on ... then get on a plane tomorrow, go home and start preparing for Melbourne City next week. That’s the plan.”
