No joke,Usain Bolt set to train with Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund’s chief executive has
confirmed that the nine-times Olympic
sprint champion Usain Bolt will train
with the Bundesliga team.
Hans-Joachim Watzke told Kicker
magazine on Sunday that “it was no
joke” and “not a marketing move”.
Watzke was
responding to a
report in the
Guardian that Bolt
planned to train
with Dortmund, one
of the top
Bundesliga teams.
Dortmund and Bolt are both sponsored
by the same Germany-based sports goods
company Puma, whose president
contacted Dortmund to say that Bolt had
asked about training with the team.
“We decided this some time ago,”
Watzke said. “Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden,
who is member of our board, has told us
that Usain is highly interested in
practising with us.
“For us that’s no problem. Our coach
Thomas Tuchel likes the idea as well. Of
course he won’t visit us in an important
week with Champions League matches
but maybe in the pre-season. We are
delighted and take this as an honour.’
Asked if Bolt could have a future in
Dortmund, Watzke replied: “We don’t
even need to talk about it.”
