Clough laughs off talk of Usain Bolt trial

Usain Bolt offered trial at Championship side Burton: 'We would be very interested!'

Usain Bolt offered trial at Championship side Burton: 'We would be very interested!'

Robinson had suggested that Burton would be interested in giving the eight-time Olympic gold medallist an opportunity now that he has retired from athletics.

Burton manager Nigel Clough has laughed off Albion chairman Ben Robinson's claim that his Championship club wanted to offer a trial to sprint legend Usain Bolt.

With numerous 100, 200 and relay medals to his name across Athletic competitions over the past nine years, Bolt's achievements speak for themselves and he's made no secret in the past of his love of football, once joking that he'd be happy to have a trial at Manchester United I believe.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through this link . The company reported $1.10 earnings per share for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.18 by $0.08.

"I'm sure we would (take him on trial) and that the manager would", he told The Sun.

Athlete Usain Bolt got quite emotional while taking his final bow on the track at the end of the World Championships in London on Sunday. He's quick, if nothing else!

Although he lost his last race, the 30 year old Jamaican was consoled by saying, "Muhammad Ali lost his last fight too - so don't be too stressed about it".

Mets put RHP Lugo on DL; Gsellman to face Yanks on Wednesday
Righty Robert Gsellman is being activated from the DL and will start in Lugo's place Wednesday at Citi Field against the Yankees. The Mets acquired outfielder Travis Snider, once a Blue Jays top prospect, for cash, and assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.

'If you ask him he will want to play football and because he has said that we have had a dozen clubs who would like him to go for a trial with them'. If he can apply the same amount of enthusiasm and dedication to soccer then who knows what might lie ahead?

Bolt is committed to the September 2 charity match at Old Trafford pending his fitness and could line up with United legends Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes in the event, which has been organised to raise money for the Manchester United foundation.

"The standard [in the Championship] is very high and obviously he would need a level of talent to get his place in the team".
