Bolt, Ferguson Meet Following ManU's Win Saturday
USAIN BOLT claims he "provided the inspiration" for ManU's 3-2 Premier League win over Fulham on Saturday -- and was later seen having a chat with ManU Manager ALEX FERGUSON, who could use a replacement for the injured WAYNE ROONEY, according to the London DAILY MAIL. Bolt was the "guest of honour" at Old Trafford and received a reception "almost as warm as those reserved" for newcomers ROBIN VAN PERSIE and SHINJI KAGAWA (DAILY MAIL, 8/26). REUTERS reported that Bolt "cheekily asked" the Red Devils supporters to try and persuade Ferguson to sign him. He then "got a chance to tap up the man himself." Bolt and Ferguson enjoyed "a cosy chat" after the game, with Bolt posting a picture of himself and Fergie on an Old Trafford couch. The meeting "appeared to involve glasses of red wine and a plate of traditional football pies." Bolt himself captioned the picture with a "tantalisingly ambiguous" message: "A wonder what we discussing? Hmmm mmm." Bolt also got a chance to rub shoulders with ManU legend BOBBY CHARLTON and also spoke to Rooney and ManU teammate RYAN GIGGS in the tunnel where the two players "looked particularly impressed at the three gold gongs" hanging round Bolt's neck (REUTERS, 8/26).
