Usain Bolt will be given by the end of the month to decide whether to continue to lead his career in professional football.
Eight times Olympic champion sprint rejected a bid from the Central Coast after a long trial with the A-League club.
Despite failing to reach an agreement with the Mariners, Bolt entered Sunday's final A League match against Melbourne Victory.
Then he was caught by winning champion Keisuke Honda for the recovery of the Melbourne team the following day.
"I have a lot of offers from many other clubs," Bolt told Omnisport.
"" We will make a decision by the end of November if I go to another club or I call it actually to stop. "
Like Mariners, Bolt trained with the Norwegian team Stromsgodset and the German giant Borussia Dortmund in search of a professional footballer.
The 32-year-old rejected the offer from the Maltese club Valetta shortly before he ended his time with sailors.
