He feels very confident that he can perform well and win championships with the A-League side. Mike Mulvey, Central Coast Mariner’s coach said Bolt has “rudimentary skills” and was “doing ok” but would take some time “to adjust”.The 8 times Olympic Gold Medalist made his appearance on the 71st minute when his team was already leading by a gigantic scoreline of 6 goals, where he played a total of 9 touches, completed a pass and missed his target once. The debut was competent for the 100-200m world record holder. Advertisement Also Read:Like Father Like Son: Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. joins Juventus’ youth academylast_img read more
