Usain Bolt points out the Man United star that can beat him in a 20-yard sprint

Usain Bolt has claimed that Marcus Rashford is the only Manchester United player who could beat him in a 20-yard sprint.

The retired sprinter hasn’t stepped foot in a track since 2017 but will be preparing to lace up his boots in some capacity, ahead of this weekend’s Soccer Aid.

The Jamaican will captain the World XI side for the clash on Sunday afternoon, having previously featured in the charity tournament.

And, with the match set to take place at United’s stadium Old Trafford, Bolt recently gave his opinion on some of the Red Devils stars.

And, in an interview with talkSPORT, the 36-year-old revealed his reasons for why Rashford could get the better of him in a short-distance sprint.

Radio host, and former Premier League striker, Darren Bent asked him: ‘I read an article where you said that Rashford could beat you over 20 yards, is that correct?’

Bolt replied: ‘Yeah! Rashford is quick out the blocks, that is what he does.

‘He has that burst of speed but after that, I told him, you could probably get me in 20 [yards]. But after that, it is over!’

Rashford enjoyed a stellar campaign up-front for United in 2022-23 and ended the campaign with 30 goals from 56 appearances in all competitions.
