Bolt : I want to be celebrating at the end

Fastest man in the world

Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world – holder of double world record for 100m and 200m sprints, is a self confessed Manchester United fan and, in the past, has visited Old Trafford on several occasions. Ahead of the Carling Cup final against Aston Villa, he is desperately backing United to defend the trophy as he prepares to meet his mates at his Kingston home at 10am Caribbean time for kick-off.

The athlete said he got a jolt when United lost 3-1 to Everton last week, especially since he was up before 8AM to watch the match, and was subsequently late for his training on Tuesday due to watching the 3-0 victory over West Ham.

“When it comes to January normally we play superbly all the way to the end.

This time it’s been up and down. We haven’t found that right XI which blends together, although there have been injuries.

Whenever Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher are together in midfield, I feel much better. I also prefer two up front rather than Wayne Rooney on his own – even though he has done very well in that role this season.

The problem is who the other striker should be because Dimitar Berbatov hasn’t done it.

We need him to step up. We were looking for big things from him but he has been disappointing.

Our back four has been the main problem, though. We might play five games well and when it comes to the next important one we mess up.

If Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand were playing together, we would be all right but, unfortunately, that isn’t happening.

Wayne has shown what it is to step up with the character of a champion.

He has taken on the big responsibility since Ronaldo left. In team sports if the main guy leaves, it’s up to others to say ‘Listen, it’s my time’ and that’s what he’s done.”
