It’s Bolt-on Won­derer!

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - An­to­nia Paget

OLYMPIC hero Usain Bolt steps out at Old Traf­ford tonight dream­ing Jose Mour­inho might give him a con­tract with his beloved Man United af­ter play­ing in a Soc­cer Aid char­ity match.

The sprinter, who re­tired from ath­let­ics last year, is cap­tain­ing a team in tonight’s celebrity-packed game to raise money for UNICEF.

And he’s con­fi­dent some­thing could come of it – but maybe in the lower di­vi­sions. “I’m very pas­sion­ate about this,” he says. “I think af­ter this game the of­fers will come in. I can al­ways start at a lower league for one or two years, but the Premier League is the dream.

“If it doesn’t work I won’t be dis­ap­pointed. I’ll have tried.”

One goal he feels more cer­tain of is start­ing a dream team with 28-yearold girl­friend Kasi Ben­nett. Usain, 31, re­veals: “I want three kids – but if we get three girls first, I’ll try for one more and hope­fully it will be a boy.”

Soc­cer Aid for UNICEF, 6.30pm, on ITV. Do­nate at soc­ceraid.org.uk.
