Usain Bolt: I Wouldn't Want to Play for Man United 'Until We Get a New Coach'

Manchester United fan and occasional world-beating sprinter Usain Bolt has become the latest in a long, long line of the club's supporters to express disappointment in their style of play under Louis van Gaal.

The Red Devils beat Liverpool 1-0 on Sunday afternoon, but fans have grown tired of United's uncharacteristically dull tactics, with even Van Gaal admitting that he sometimes gets "bored" during matches.

And Jamaican athlete Bolt, who has previously spoken about trialling with the club, isn't on board with the new style.

Speaking with media at the Jamaican Sportsman of the Year Awards (via ESPN FC's Chris Wright), the 29-year-old admitted that under the current management, he wouldn't want to join the side.

"Well, looking at how Van Gaal is, I don't think I would ever want to be coached by him so I think I will put that on pause until we get a new coach," he said.

It would appear the six-time Olympic gold medalist and 11-time world champion is not entertained.
