first_imgThe eight-time Olympic gold medallist had seven touches of the ball and came close to getting on the end of a cross towards the end of the match, though he appeared to be struggling for fitness as the final whistle drew close.After the match, he said: “I think the first 15 was pretty good, the last five I could feel my back getting a little bit tight.“But overall I wasn’t too tired so that’s a good sign.“I think probably in the next month I should be up and running at speed.” 4 Usain Bolt expects to be up to speed within a month after making a 20-minute debut for Central Coast Mariners in pre-season.The 32-year-old former sprinter was introduced to the game with Mariners leading a Central Coast Select XI 6-1, though he failed to cap his appearance with a goal in the emphatic defeat. 4 4 4 Bolt started to tire towards the end of his cameo Earlier this year, Bolt spent time training with Borussia Dortmund Bolt is hoping to earn a permanent football contract after hanging up his running shoes “So I think I’m good for five years. I’m in good shape. I’m feeling young and I’m ready to go.”Bolt chose to wear the number 95 for the game against the select XI – an obvious nod to his world record 9.58 100m record.And the tracksuit came off late in the second half as Bolt’s entrance delighted the Central Coast Stadium crowd. Asked about which aspects of his game he needs to improve on, Bolt said: “I think moving off the ball, knowing and understanding where to be when the ball is played to the wing.“It’s all about the movement, I personally think.“In four months’ time, I’ll be fit, be getting a lot more time on the ball. I personally feel I will get a contract by then, I will be playing for much more time.“I feel like that with track and field, it’s not that rough on your body.“We don’t have a lot of contact so I don’t think it’s hard on my body. Head coach Mike Mulvey added: “I thought the big fella did OK. He’s a confident guy.“The game changed a lot in the second half, we scored a lot of goals in the first half and they dropped a lot deeper, so there was no space in behind.“It was a good exercise. He was on a hiding to nothing, he was a little bit nervous, but I’m quite happy with him.” Bolt was called off the bench for the final 20 minutes of the match last_img read more
