In a recent interview, Usain Bolt made a crazy prediction about Manchester United which came true in their FA Cup game against Fulham. Before that match, Bolt was asked about the final score to which he replied, “I think it’s going to finish 3-1.”

To everyone’s surprise, Man United ended up securing a 3-1 victory over the Cottagers which ensured their place in the FA Cup semifinals. A brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Marcel Sabitzer was enough for the Mancunian club to pull off a late comeback versus the nine-men of Fulham that day.
Bolt’s prediction came true and he didn’t shy away from boasting about it on Twitter.
Bolt is a retired Jamaican sprinter who is considered by many as one of the best of his generation. He has previously won the Olympic gold medal eight times during his long and decorated professional career.
Bolt has often shared his love for football in the past and has even taken up the sport professionally.
Usain Bolt And His Love For Manchester United
Bolt is a huge Manchester United fan and has not been hesitant of expressing his fondness for the Mancunian club publicly. He has previously expressed his frustrations with Man United’s owners, the Glazer family but remains keen on watching them live at every chance he gets.
Bolt has also visited Old Trafford to support the Red Devils in the past, so it is no wonder that he is getting a few of his predictions right about them.
The 36-year-old is an eight-time Olympic champion who knows what it takes to be a serial winner. He has also developed a passion for football. Maybe, becoming a pundit would not too be too far-fetched for Usain as he has got the personality and winning record to excel in front of the camera.
Bolt’s net worth in 2023 is believed to be around $95m which could grow even more if the star athlete can find a way to promote himself as a media personality.
We wish the Jamaican legend the best for the future.
