Ex-Wolves striker Keogh: Usain Bolt a farce; kick in the teeth to pros

Former Wolves striker Andy Keogh has scoffed at Usain Bolt's football ability.

Keogh, now with Perth Glory, has blasted Usain Bolt's footballing ability, stating that the eight-time Olympic champion has a first touch 'like a trampoline'.

Bolt has been on trial with Australian club Central Coast Mariners since August.

As reported by Off The Ball, Keogh said: "It's nice to have the attention on the A League but him playing in the A League, that's not for me. He's 31. For me, he's not going to be able to make it [as a footballer].

"He's shown a bit [of potential] but it's a little bit of a kick in the teeth to the professionals that are in the league.

"It's fine from a marketing point of view but from a football perspective, it's a little bit farcical."
