Joe Jones posted an article in European LeaguesBorussia Dortmund head coach Peter Stoger has stressed that Usain Bolt has "a lot of work to do" to become a top-level footballer. The retired sprinter, who won eight Olympic gold medals, has always harboured hopes of playing for his beloved Manchester United. Bolt drew the world's media to the German club this weekend as he was involved in an open training session with Dortmund's first team on Friday, enjoying a session with those that were not selected for international duty. The world-record holder in the 100 metres was also training with South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in January and will participate in a charity match at Old Trafford in June. "It's all about procedure and movement, but the most important thing is that he had fun," Stoger told Sky Sports. "I think he is talented, but when he wants to play at a higher level, he clearly has a lot of work to do. "The physique he needs for his other sport is completely different from what he needs for football, but it was really fun for us. It was a pleasure for us to meet a guy like him and to work with him."

Joe Jones posted an article in European LeaguesBorussia Dortmund have confirmed the sacking of head coach Peter Bosz after less than six months in charge. The 54-year-old was dismissed on Sunday in the wake of Dortmund's shock 2-1 defeat to Werder Bremen, which left the Schwarzgelben 13 points adrift of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich. Former Ajax boss Bosz, who replaced Thomas Tuchel in the summer, departs the Westfalenstadion with the team seventh in the table after a run of nine games without a win which stretches back to October 24. Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke in a statement: "Last night, in a conversation with Peter Bosz, we decided that we would release him with immediate effect. It was very emotional, but also respectful. "On behalf of all at Borussia, I would like to thank Peter Bosz. We still consider him a great coach and person." At the same time, Peter Stoger has been appointed as his replacement until the end of the season, despite being sacked by FC Koiln earlier this month with the club bottom of the Bundesliga. "I'm really happy to be coach of this team and to be in this stadium," Stoger, whose first match will be away at Mainz on Tuesday, said at a press conference after his appointment.
