Bolt potential UCL club revealed

Posted: 16 October 2018 Time: 18:30

The club who has offered Usain Bolt a two-year contract to spearhead their charge to the UEFA Champions League has been revealed.

Bolt, 32, has been offered his first professional football contract to play for Maltese club Valletta FC who have outlined an ambitious plot to get into Europe's elite club competition.

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

These comments were made after Bolt earned global headlines for his brace for A-League side Central Coast Mariners in a pre-season friendly last Friday.

According to a report from ESPN, Valletta FC, the champions of the small island, were taken over by Abu Dhabi-based Sanban Group in September.

And the new investors immediately set a goal of guiding the club to the upper echelons of European football.

Valletta FC have won the Maltese Premier League five of the past eight seasons to earn a Champions League place, but they have never advanced past the second qualifying round.
