Bolt relishes dream for Man Utd appearance

International Sports

Usian Bolt Usian Bolt Olympic sprinter and Manchester United fan Usain Bolt has revealed he would be reluctant to represent the Red Devils under Louis van Gaal.

The fastest man in history, who has won six Olympic gold medals during his illustrious career, has previously described the chance to play for United as a "big dream".

The Jamaican may be famous for his sprinting but has also claimed he could be a handy addition to the Old Trafford ranks on several occasions.

Bolt, 29, remains adamant that is still the case but cheekily suggested he would spurn any opportunity to feature for the club until Van Gaal's tenure is at an end.

I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play," he told reporters at the Jamaican Sportsman of the Year awards.

"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."

Van Gaal's style of play has been regularly criticised by former United players this season, including Paul Scholes, who called the Dutchman's team "boring".

Despite concerns about United's possession based brand of football Van Gaal led his side to a crucial 1-0 victory over rivals Liverpool last weekend.

The club are now fifth in the Premier League table - seven points adrift of pacesetters Arsenal - ahead of Saturday's trip to Southampton.
