Usain Bolt in the A-League – Publicity or Talent?
The Central Coast Mariners announced their marquee signing of 2018: Usain Bolt, who is hoping to score a permanent contract with the club. Coach Mike Mulvey has announced to the press that Bolt is on an ‘indefinite trial’, in a hope of winning a full time contract. The question that comes to mind for football fans in Australia however is that with so much young talent in our country, is this a publicity stunt for the Mariners to see higher audiences, or is this going to be a signing based on merit? Dr Steve Georgakis, senior lecturer of pedagogy and sports studies at the University of Sydney joined Ruby on Tuesday’s Drive program to discuss.
