Bolt called out for drug testing by FFA

Reigning Maltese champions Valletta FC, boasting cash to splash after investors from the UAE recently took charge of the club and vowed to fund a charge towards the Champions League, have reportedly offered Bolt a two-year contract.

Sprint legend Usain Bolt was left in disbelief when Australia's anti-doping authority (ASADA) sent a drug test notice to the retired Jamaican athelte.

The 100-metre world record-holder, who has been bidding for a professional contract since he retired a year ago, recovered from a painful kick in the groin to grab a double against Macarthur South West United in Sydney.

Bolt has been on trial at A-League club Central Coast Mariners in New South Wales for the past two months, and opened his goal-scoring account for the club with a double in a recent friendly.

"A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible", Slimen said.

"We play the final of the Super Cup on December 13, which we will win, because we play Balzan who we beat in the league, so can you imagine Usain Bolt lifting the Super Cup trophy 10 years after he broke the record in Beijing?"

"They've seen me in training, they've seen what I'm capable of, so they need to analyse and say, 'Is he good enough?' and they will tell me that", Bolt told reporters.

"This isn't about money, this is about history. Okay then", Bolt further said in the video. Koch made a decision to clarify if Bolt's Australian Central Coast Mariners would "make a lot of money out of" his possible transfer. Despite not being a professional footballer, Bolt is officially registered with Central Coast Mariners and by the guidelines of Asada, is eligible to be tested.

Gallop said there was no chance of using the marquee fund to meet Bolt's contract demands, as its goal was to attract proven world-class players.

"It's very much, the ball in the Mariners' court", Gallop told Macquarie Sports Radio.
