Nigel Clough has laughed off suggestions that Burton Albion could offer sprint legend Usain Bolt a trial at the club.
Burton chairman Ben Robinson this week claimed that the Championship side could offer the eight-time Olympic medallist a chance to launch an unlikely career in football now that he has retired from athletics.
But speaking after Burton's 2-0 defeat against Middlesbrough on Tuesday, Clough light-heartedly dismissed his chairman's comments.
I didn't know he [the chairman] picked the players, he'll have to come down and spend 10 minutes in the technical area and see how he goes.
Would that be a loan or permanent? I'm not quite sure. He would certainly add some pace.
As long as he doesn't want much money I'm sure we will be OK.
