Usain Bolt Gives Up On Football, Retires After Only Two Matches



Our favorite Jamaican ex-sprint star and record breaker, Usain Bolt takes an early retirement from football after failing to agree on a contract with Australian side Central Coast Mariners late last year after a trial of only two matches.


“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn,” he said.

“It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was must different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted.”


MySportDab report Bolt, who won Olympic sprint gold medals in Beijing, London and Rio, said he will now focus on his business endeavors.

“I’m just doing many different things… the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a business man now.”

“I think a lot of these athletes, I think it’s much easier now for them,” Bolt told reporters.

“When we were coming up it was a struggle.”
