Usain Bolt Officially Joins A-League Side Central Coast Mariners
A-League side Central Coast Mariners have confirmed that they have brought in the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, for an indefinite training period.
The Olympic Champion has tried his luck at Borussia Dortmund and Norwegian outfit Strømsgodset in the past, but he will finally sign a professional contract, with some saying that he could make an appearance against Brisbane Roar FC on Sunday 21 October.
"The Central Coast Mariners remain committed to discussions with the 'world's fastest man' and his management team, regarding what role the Club may play in Bolt's burning ambition to become a professional footballer." they said in a statement, last month.
Now, they have brought Bolt in on an indefinite training period, and the man himself sent the following video message to fans on social media, this afternoon.

You know what this means, folks. Usain Bolt could feature on FIFA 19 in the coming months if he is offered a permanent deal with the Australian outfit which got us thinking.
What stats would EA Sports give the 31-year-old if he were to appear on the game?

We've decided to knock up a prototype of sorts, with his 99 pace being the major perk to this exciting card., along with his impressive 80 physical stat.
Judging by his previous appearances in Soccer Aid, as well as Borussia Dortmund training, we're guessing that Bolt would be given a Bronze, 62-rated ST card respectively.
In terms of his defensive stats Bolt would predictably struggle to match up with his fellow professionals, but we all know gamers would throw him either on the wing or up top to burn defenders with his blistering pace.
Just look at this card and tell me you wouldn't buy it.
Thoughts on the above card? Would you change any of his stats?
Let us know in the comments.
