Usain Bolt’s eerie pregame prediction of Manchester United’s 3-1 victory over Fulham during his visit to Old Trafford.


Usain Bolt, an avid supporter of Manchester United, was in attendance at Old Trafford on Sunday to watch the team’s thrilling FA Cup victory over Fulham.

The eight-time Olympic champion also correctly predicted the final score.

Bolt, 36, reposted a clip to TwitterManchester United’s Instagram account deleted his pre-match prediction after the game.

When asked what he expected the final score to be in the video released before the FA Cup quarterfinal matchup, he predicted a 3-1 victory.

The current 100- and 200-meter world record holder’s forecast came true.

He winked and wrote “told you” in the video’s caption to indicate that his pregame prediction had come true.

Bolt’s pregame prediction proved accurate thanks to a goal from Bruno Fernandes in the 96th minute.

The Fulham visitors got on the board first thanks to Aleksandar Mitrovic.

But the Red Devils responded when Willian was sent off for a handball right on the goal line, and a penalty by Fernandes put them ahead.

At first, referee Chris Kavanagh didn’t award a penalty kick, but then he changed his mind after consulting the video assistant referee’s (VAR) monitor.


During the check, he sent off Fulham manager Marco Silva, and then in the space of 40 seconds, he sent off Willian for a handball and Mitrovic for barging referee Chris Kavanagh.

The Red Devils took the lead after Marcel Sabitzer scored his first goal for United, and they held on until the final minute of regulation when Fernandes scored the game-winning goal.

The late winner confirmed Bolt’s pregame prediction and set up a semi-final showdown with Brighton at Wembley next month.

At the Theatre of Dreams, the Olympic hero Bolt met United’s current manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Jamaican superstar will lead the World XI back to Old Trafford in June for Soccer Aid.

Meanwhile, Jill Scott, known for her time with the Lionesses and as the “Queen of the Jungle,” will lead England’s XI.
