Mario Gotze believes Usain Bolt can succeed as a professional footballer.
The eight-time Olympic champion is on trial with the Central Coast Mariners and is hoping to win a permanent contract with the A-League club over the next 12 months.
Gotze saw Bolt’s potential during a training stint at his Bundesliga club earlier this year, and thinks the 32-year-old can make it.
“I think [Bolt] can make it. I don’t really know the level of the Australian league and I don’t know the teams there,” Gotze told Omnisport.
“He is a sportsman and he has a lot of abilities that are important to be successful in football, too.”
