The A-League needed a hero, and we got superman.
"We think that his best will be enough to play or play a part in an A-League competition", he said.
Rallis is now in the United Kingdom and has been dealing directly with Bolt's representative Ricky Simms, who he says is fully supportive of the idea.
The Mariners, who finished bottom of the A-League last season, have recently employed former Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan as their sporting director.
"He's got a very good left foot and only time will tell what level he's at, and does that fit the A-League", he added.
"The Club can confirm that it has been in negotiations with the Olympic Champion & World Record Holder, regarding the opportunity to trial here on the Central Coast".Читайте также: UK's Theresa May: Trump told me to 'sue the EU' over Brexit
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - AUGUST 17: Usain Bolt of Jamaica reacts after competing in the Men's 200m Semifinals on Day 12 of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium on August 17, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. "If it materialises into a contract, that's when we need some funding", he said.
"He might be quite handy, I don't know, but for me, if we are going to go down that road, we are reducing the A-League to a sideshow, a circus freak show, a gimmick".
Speaking at a business function back in May, O'Rourke announced that the league are planning to double their marketing fund and relaunch the "multi-million dollar super marquee fund" that was previously used to lure big-named draws like Alessandro Del Piero, David Villa and Emile Heskey to play down under.
FFA is believed to be deep in talks with former Japanese worldwide Keisuke Honda, who is interested in joining Melbourne Victory and would command the majority of the fund if he reaches an agreement with the A-League champions.
Though on the pitch for less than half an hour, Bolt struggled with his first touch and, playing as a forward, failed to make the runs you'd expect of the sprint king.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
