Bolt rejects move to Maltese club Valletta

Most Australian soccer pundits said Bolt had shown signs of improvement and better fitness in the Mariners' 4-0 win over an amateur local side on Friday but felt he was some way off the level of being able to compete in the Australian top flight.

He recently scored two goals in a trial match against Macarthur South West United in Sydney, and although he hasn't yet been given a contract it appears he may still appear on Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 as a free agent. But if he isn't listed then he might be included as a free agent.

So, what about his speed?

The world's fastest man will grace Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 sooner or later with EA Sports confirming Usain Bolt will be added to the popular game.

While the Mariners are coy on whether they'll offer him a contract, EA confirmed that regardless, Bolt will be playable in Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 very soon. Bolt's agent has suggested his client is receiving plenty of offers aside from Valletta's approach, so may bide his time in making a decision.

Ignoring the controversy surrounding the decision, Griezmann stepped up and buried the spot kick to earn the win. Die Mannschaft sit rock bottom of Group A after back-to-back defeats to the Netherlands and France this week.

"A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible", ESPN quoted Valletta managing director and CEO Ghasston Slimen as saying.

Valletta, champions of the Maltese Premier League, were taken over by Abu Dhabi-based Sanban Group in September, and the owners have spoken of their aim to get the club into the Champions League group stage.

The Maltese side have won their domestic league five times in the last eight years but have never progressed further than the second round of Champions League qualifying.

Football Federation Australia has said it would not raid a special fund set up to lure marquee players to the league if the Mariners decide Bolt, 32, is worth the risk, but it would likely be thrilled to have him in the league if only for his marketing value.

Bolt retired from athletics in 2017, has trained with Borussia Dortmund and made clear his desire to earn a professional deal. The Australian club has since indicated that it is too early to tell if the player will be given a full-time contract.
