- Usain Bolt has received words of encouragements from Paul Pogba and Raheem Sterling on his football career
- Since he retired, the Jamaican has been trying to get a professional contract in football, but he was recently disappointed in Australia
- He has therefore been encouraged by Paul Pogba and Raheem Sterling who believe he can do it also in football
Retired Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has revealed that Frenchman Paul Pogba and Raheem Sterling gave him some words of encouragement as his football career hangs in the balance.
Despite his superb form when he went for a trial at Australian club Central Coast Mariners, Usain Bolt was not offered a professional football contract.
The 32-year-old eight time Olympic gold medalist played two games for Central Coast Mariners while on trial scoring two goals, but he left the club in disappointment.
Usain Bolt's dream of playing professional football is in turmoil for now, but he has been encouraged by two Premier League superstars.
"I've talked to Pogba and Sterling and they are happy to see me trying, they say 'come on, you can do it.
"They support me, so I'm not going to worry about some simple players saying some things about me because I have high-level players knowing this is a dream and what I want to do.
"This is not about all about the money. This is a dream, and I want to try and see how good I can be,'' Usain Bolt explained according to UK Sun.
