Dwight set to boss A-League club
Dwight Yorke, a United legend, could start his managerial career with Macarthur FC in the A-League.
When he signed for Sydney FC in 2005, the former Manchester United striker, 50, spent a year in Australia.
He is set to return, but his role will be off the field this time.
Yorke is in advanced talks with Macarthur, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, and a two-year deal is expected.
The Manchester United legend earned his coaching badges with the Red Devils, who recommended him to the Bulls to kickstart his new career.
When Yorke takes charge of the A-League Allstars for their upcoming match against Barcelona, he will get a taste of managing.
“I’m announcing to the world – with the [APL] and Danny [Townsend, the APL’s managing director] giving me that opportunity – that I’m finally qualified and ready for a leading role,” he told ESPN ahead of the event.
“I believe thаt will mаke some news.” And then, if аn opportunity does аrise, I must investigаte it.”
