Usain Bolt Offered Professional Contract By A-League Side Central Coast Mariners

Central Coast Mariners confirmed last month that the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, would join the club for an indefinite training period.

Now, it looks like the Jamaican will sign pen a contract with the A-League side after Bolt's agent Ricky Simms told ESPN that the former 100m sprinter has been offered a contract after impressing during his short time at the club.

"I can confirm Usain has been offered a contract by Central Coast Mariners." he said.

The Jamaican officially made his bow for the A-League side, coming on in the 70th minute against an amateur team in Gosford, north of Sydney.

Bolt then bagged his first and second goals for the club against Macarthur South West United.

He got played in behind, displayed pace and power and then slotted home brilliantly with his left peg.
