Usain Bolt relieved Manchester City won Premier League over Arsenal despite being Man United fan

Olympics legend Usain Bolt has revealed he is relieved Manchester City won the Premier League title over Arsenal. 

The title race went to the final day of the season and Pep Guardiola’s men triumphed for the fourth consecutive season having finished two points ahead of the Gunners.

Meanwhile, Liverpool faltered in the latter weeks of the season and eventually ended the campaign nine points off the top.  

Manchester United supporter Bolt says while he didn’t want any of the three teams to win the title, Man City’s success was more bearable because Arsenal fans ‘talk so much’. 

Bolt was told by talkSPORT United’s eighth place finish was not good enough and he responded: ‘Yeah, but we’re in Europe.

‘Everybody always asks me who I’d rather win the Premier League out of Arsenal and Man City – I’m like, “Man City, easy.”

‘People are like, “But they’re your rival”.

‘I know a lot of Arsenal fans and when they’re top of the table they talk so much and I’m like, ‘You haven’t won yet!’

The 37-year-old added: ‘Imagine if they actually won? Oh my God, It would be over.

‘I’d rather Man City win than Arsenal because I couldn’t deal with it.

‘Liverpool? No, because they’d be tied on titles with us and we can’t have that and because Arsenal talk so much, I’d rather deal with Man City.

‘They’re all young fans and I don’t know many young people so I’m fine with that!’

Bolt will take to the football pitch on Sunday when he represents World XI against England at Soccer Aid.
