The Jamaican’s agent Ricky Simms confirmed the news to Fairfax Media, saying: ‘In response to the media stories, yes, Usain has been offered a contract. I do not want to make any further comment at this stage.’
But the coach of Central Coast Mariners,Mike Mulvey, denied any knowledge of an offer but wondered if the Jamaican sprint king could fit into the team.
‘You have a look at our front line today and you wonder whether he could get into any of those positions, wouldn’t you?’, he said.
‘I do appreciate how important this story is for the rest of the world.
‘You’re just talking about speculation, I don’t know anything about what you’re talking about and that’s the honest truth.’
