Usain Bolt has come under fire from Jamaicans following his recent controversial statement.
During a recent interview, the Jamaican sprint legend reportedly said he will not encourage Bayer Leverkusen football star Leon Bailey to play for the national team as it is currently below his level.
Social media users have since blasted Bolt for his comments as according to them Bailey should be proud to wear the Jamaican colours.
Bolt, however, has received support from several others including recording artiste Cecile who has sided with his statement.
Bailey joined Bayer Leverkusen in January 2017 for a fee of €20 million, after interest from Manchester United and Chelsea. However last year it was reported that Bailey would refuse Jamaica call-ups until the standards of Jamaican football improved.
