Ex-Man Utd coach Mike Phelan signs Khalifa Cisse for Central Coast Mariners - and Usain Bolt

Former Manchester United and Hull City coach Mike Phelan is handing pro trials to Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt.

The fastest man on the planet, now 31, is heading Down Under where he is set to link up with former United assistant boss Phelan, reports Bristol Live.

Bolt is being offered the chance to earn a 12-month deal with A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

The Mariners are close to securing a six-week contract for legendary Jamaican sprinter Bolt, with the hopes that it could turn into a season-long deal should his initial spell at the club go to plan.

The 100m world record holder is not the only person to be joining ex-Bristol City midfielder Khalifa Cisse at the Mariners.
