Usain Bolt is a massive Manchester United fan, this you will already know. The world's fastest man has made cameo appearances at Old Trafford over the years and once pleaded with Sir Alex Ferguson for a trial with the club, as per the Daily Mail.

But perhaps Bolt's talent lies on the coaching side, rather than as a lightning-fast striker.

The Jamaican sprint champion criticised United's midfield setup after their loss at Liverpool, in an angry Instagram video post that went viral. Watch the clip below.

After watching a rejuvenated United beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 in the Champions League this week, Bolt believes manager David Moyes heeded his advice.

"I think David Moyes heard, I'm sure, because it was all over the news," Bolt told ITV.

"I think he surely got that message. He got (Marouane) Fellaini and (Shinji) Kagawa is now playing, so the team is much better and a lot more stable."

Usain Bolt, the new manager of Manchester United? It's a ridiculous thought, but there's a small part of Bolt that probably believes it's possible.
