“It would be a waste” Archie Thompson on potential Bolt move
Melbourne Victory legend Archie Thompson believes Usain Bolt has the mental toughness for the A-League and it would be a waste for the Central Coast Mariners to let him go to a European club.
Speaking on Macquarie Sports Radio Thompson said, “The area and club has been struggling for so long, why not try this avenue.”
Thompson added, “You’ve got one of the most recognisable athletes, sponsorship wise, in the world, I think it’s a great marketing ploy.”
No language barrier and Australian lifestyle were the original reasons for the former Olympic champion to link up with the Mariners, however he could be giving both of those things up.
