Bolt offered two-year deal by European club, says agent

Usain Bolt was shocked at receiving a notice for a drug test in Australia and expressed the same through an Instagram story on Monday.

"I'm keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team". I'm not even a professional footballer.

The 32-year-old scored twice on his first start in Friday's friendly against Macarthur South West United to stake his claim for an offer ahead of the Mariners' A-League campaign beginning this weekend. "Seriously", the 100m and 200m world record holder added. The retired sprint king has been concertedly trying to make it as a professional footballer ever since he hung up his spikes in 2017 and would be a huge talking point and commercial draw for any club that offers him a proper contract.

"And she said they told her I'm an elite athlete, so I have to get tested".

Bolt may be displeased with the notice, it would appear that the Austrailian Anti-Doping Guidelines mean that the FFA is only acting within the rules.

Bolt falls under the Asada definition of an athlete as he "competes in sport and who is subject to the National Anti-Doping Scheme".

I spent a very brief amount of time with the Galaxy A9 at the launch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and here are my initial thoughts. Next, we have an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens that will provide more background in the shot that you are about to snap.

And the new investors immediately set a goal of guiding the club to the upper echelons of European football.

The self professed Manchester United fan has had trials with clubs in Europe including the 2013 Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

The Jamaican legend is now deciding whether to continue to fight for an A-League contract, or instead take up an offer to join reigning Maltese champions Valletta FC, whose new UAE owners are bidding to lead the club into the Champions League.

Central Coast Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp is unsure if the club will try to land Bolt on a permanent deal, saying last week: "We have genuinely treated Usain like we would have any other trialist".

Bolt's Australian representative Tony Rallis refused to comment on the latest development or whether his client has a deadline in mind.
