Bolt spoke to The Sportsman before Soccer Aid

The fastest man in history and famous Manchester United fan, Usain Bolt, has confessed he was delighted that Manchester City won the Premier League title ahead of historic rivals Liverpool.

He even called his friend Raheem Sterling after the game to congratulate him on his success: "That's the only time I've cheered for City in my entire life. I'm so happy, I called Raheem and was like 'WELL DONE BLOKE'."

Speaking to The Sportsman ahead of this weekend’s SoccerAid game at Stamford Bridge, Bolt spoke about United’s campaign under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 100m and 200m world record holder was left frustrated by last season: "It was good until all the players got injured.

“For some reason after Rashford, Martial, Mata all these guys got injured and they came back, it was like they were totally different. For me, I know other times they have the drive so hopefully we can pick up a few new players this season.

"I don't know who we are going to get because we have a new gaffer. So do the players that want to come here have the confidence - that's the question"

Bolt will be hoping to lead his World XI to success on Sunday after suffering a penalty shootout loss at Old Trafford last year. The Jamaican will this year be managed by the unlikely duo of Harry Redknapp and Piers Morgan and playing alongside legends such as Roberto Carlos, Didier Drogba and Eric Cantona.

Meanwhile, the England team managed by Sam Allardyce will feature footballing stars such as John Terry, Joe Cole and Michael Owen playing alongside celebrities like Ant Middleton, Mo Farah and Sam Claflin.

Over the years, Soccer Aid has raised more than £20 million for UNICEF which has helped the poorest children in our society. Every pound donated this year will be matched by the UK Government up to the sum of £3million.
