Welbeck: Bolt should have United trial

Danny Welbeck has told Usain Bolt to come and train with Manchester United and show the Premier League leaders his footballing skills.

The six-time Olympic champion is the fastest man ever and a big United fan who has said he would like to play for the club in a charity game. Sir Alex Ferguson has said the sprinter could make an appearance in a friendly match against Real Madrid's Legends team next year.

Striker Welbeck said he would relish the chance to train with the ebullient Bolt, who won gold medals at the 100m, 200m and 4 x100m replay at the London Olympics.

"He should come over and trial," he told United's official website in a webchat with supporters. "He should come and train and show us what he's got. He's the fastest man in the world. He's one of a kind and I admire the way he prepares for his races. He's a real character."

Bolt was paraded on the Old Trafford pitch before August's win over Fulham and the Jamaican, a big cricket supporter, has talked about switching to football or cricket after the 2016 Olympics.

He was also linked with the Melbourne Stars Twenty20 team captained by Shane Warne, who play in Australia's Big Bash League.

Welbeck also vowed that United would not get complacent, despite going six points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League title race with Sunday's derby 3-2 win.

He said: "To go six points clear and to do it in a Manchester derby was a great boost for us. We won't be too complacent, though. Every single point counts."

Team-mate Ashley Young added: "We knew if we won the game we'd go six points clear and that could have an effect on the title race. You saw the celebrations and how much it meant to the players and the staff. It was a massive boost for everyone at the club."
