London Eye: Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand fast to tap up Usain Bolt
Wednesday 08 August 2012
Usain Bolt has made no secret of his desire to play football for his beloved Manchester United, and it appears United's defender Rio Ferdinand will engineer a trial for him at Old Trafford. "If you want that trial shout me, I'll speak to the boss!" he tweeted to the world's fastest man yesterday, and Bolt was quick off the blocks to respond to Ferdinand: "After the Olympics we work on that, thanks man."
