Olympic Champion Usain Bolt To Train With Borussia Dortmund

It has been confirmed Olympic champion, Usain Bolt, will be training with German club,Borussia Dortmund. Bundesliga club’s chief executive Hans-joachim Watzke  has confirmed that the nine-times Olympic sprint champion will be training with the team.

“It's neither a joke nor a marketing measure, it's something that has been decided on for quite a while, ” Watzke told Kicker Magazine.

Apparently Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden  - both Dortmund and Bolt sponsor-  told the club that Bolt had asked to train with the club.

“We decided this some time ago,” Watzke said. “Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden, who is member of our board, has told us that Usain is highly interested in practising with us.

“For us that’s no problem. Our coach Thomas Tuchel likes the idea as well. Of course he won’t visit us in an important week with Champions League matches but maybe in the pre-season. We are delighted and take this as an honour.’

A football lover,  Bolt admitted in the past that it would be a 'dream' to play for Manchester United, the club he supports.

Asked if Bolt could have a future in Dortmund, Watzke replied: “We don’t even need to talk about it.”
