Usain Bolt was the yardstick in Athletics after riding on a long stretch of success during his time on the track.
But there has been enough dirt on the road for the retired sprinter, whose transition to football has begun to go downhill.
But ascending through the thick walls of football as a breaking out star, means you’ll have to string yourself tighter to the walls, to avoid any kind of plunge.
The 32-year-old enjoyed strings of successes on the track, but his rise to fame in football is going at a snail pace and he is set to hit a wreck in his new trade.
Bolt started his training with A-League side Central Coast Mariners as he trotted down his new career lane as a footballer.
Like an oncoming train, his arrival was boldly announced and the 32-year-old would later begin his flight up the stairs to yet another fame when he would later score a brace in a friendly for the A-League outfit.
Bolt put down offers from Maltese champions Valletta to join the club on 18 October, quickly putting off thoughts of a possible move and signing for Central Coast Mariners instead, three days later.
However, doubts are dangling concerning his future at the A-League outfit.
Both parties have yet to reach a settlement over the player’s pay wage. Initially, it was understood Bolt’s representatives had agreed a 3 million dollars deal with the club. However, emerging reports claim the outfit have suddenly chopped down that figure to 150,000 dollars.
A statement rolled out by the outfit revealed that the club cannot fork out the big sum, pleading with commercial partners(third parties) to underpin the deal. However, the channel of communications between both parties is still open.
Central Coast Mariners is keen on helping the Manchester United fan realise his dream to becoming a professional footballer. And the Football Federation Australia says it will step in to make that happen.
