Usain Bolt couldn't stop himself from aiming a dig at Arsenal for failing to win the Premier League title for the second season in a row.

Usain Bolt, the legendary sprinter and fervent Manchester United supporter, has aimed a playful dig at Arsenal fans, expressing his delight that the Gunners missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City.

According to Bolt, he was glad Arsenal missed out on the title because their fans "talk too much."

Bolt's affinity for Manchester United is well-known, and despite his team's struggles this season, he found solace in their FA Cup victory, which secured European qualification despite an eighth-place league finish. 

Meanwhile, rivals Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool were locked in a tight race for the Premier League crown.

Ultimately, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City emerged victorious, with Arsenal finishing second and Liverpool ending the season nine points behind the leaders. While Bolt would have preferred none of these teams to win, he found City's triumph the most tolerable.

In an interview with talkSPORT, Bolt was asked who had a more successful season, Arsenal or United.

He humorously likened United's season to an athlete performing well but failing to win medals at the championship. "It’s like I’m running on a circuit and doing well and then I get to the Championship and win no medals," he said.

Bolt has revealed who of the three title challenges from last season he would have preferred to win the league.

“Man City, easy,” Bolt declared. He elaborated, “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!’ 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.”

Bolt also discussed his views on Liverpool, another fierce rival.

 “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!”
