Usain Bolt Turns Down Two-Year Offer To Play For Valletta

Bolt turns down 2-year deal with Champions League hopefuls

Valletta managing director and CEO Ghasston Slimen told ESPN: "A champion is always welcome and at Valletta we believe nothing is impossible".

Usain Bolt has been put in his place after a rival coach delivered a scathing assessment of the sprint king's A-League prospects.

The 32-year-old Jamaican scored two goals in his starting debut for the Mariners in a trial game last Friday.

"I've seen him play and, with all my love, I don't think he could achieve it [being a professional footballer] even in 100 years", Babbel admitted to Swiss newspaper Blick.

"If you haven't done it from a very small age and hone your technique and skills, (it's) very, very hard at a later age to switch to our sport and play at the highest level".

Ford GT order book is open...again
That same year, it entered production, with the first customer deliveries coming before the end of that year. Ford now says that it's billing the starting as price as "near $500,000" before options.

Now while it may seem incredibly fanciful that Usain Bolt - fastest man in the world and Olympic gold medalist - could actually feature in Federation Internationale de Football Association, it is not fanciful at all according to the makers of the game EA Sports Canada.

Mariners coach Mike Mulvey, however, was reluctant to talk about Bolt on Thursday, insisting he was not involved in negotiations. From 1.88 million spectators in the 2013-14 season - an average of 13,479 per match - attendance dropped to 1.529 million during the 2017-18 season, or 10,926 per match. League officials don't appear to be concerned with the attendance drop, announcing Wednesday that they are considering six bids for an expected expansion by two teams in the 2019-20 season.

"I speak with all the players all the time", he said.

"I have convictions in my own ability and I'm very happy to be on the Central Coast and really looking forward to the season".

"If it's possible many, many other people would do it, for me it's not working", Babbel said.
