These comments were made after Bolt earned global headlines for his brace for A-League side Central Coast Mariners in a pre-season friendly last Friday.

Eight-time Olympic champion Bolt, who retired from the track in 2017, is now on trial with Australian side Central Coast Mariners as he bids to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional footballer.

Valletta FC revealed exclusively to ESPN that they have offered a two-year deal for the former track superstar to "spearhead their charge to the Champions League", possibly debuting in mid-December. "That's the tough world of professional football".

The 100m world record-holder retired from athletics previous year and is on trial with the Australian side Central Coast Mariners.

While Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) refused to discuss Bolt's case specifically it pointed out the Jamaican fell within their remit.

"A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible", Slimen said.

Usain Bolt's new career in football/soccer is about to take off big.

ESPN has reported that the club in Europe is ambitious Maltese champions Valletta FC.

"This isn't about money, this is about history".

Bolt said he had a "lot more to learn" and was keen to join the Mariners on a professional contract. "He's been training hard with us and he showed weaknesses, but he also showed his strengths and got two goals, so all credit to him", he said. However, Bolt is yet to sign a deal with Australia's A-League club Central Coast Mariners, where he is now on trial. As per the notice, it appears that the Football Federation Australia has asked the athlete to submit his urine and blood samples.

"If they get to that [signing] point, then we'll look at what's feasible for us, but it can't be for the marquee player fund", he said.

After retiring from athletics previous year, the eight-time Olympic champion is now working to build a new career in the football arena.
