Dwight Yorke wants to coach Sydney A-League side

Former English Premier League midfielder Dwight Yorke says he’s

interested in the Sydney FC coaching job.

Yorke, who played for Sydney in 2005-06 when it won the

inaugural A-League, told The Sunday Telegraph that ”I’ve been

there as a player and know what success is all about in Sydney …

I’m absolutely interested.”

The 40-year-old Yorke played 232 matches for Aston Villa and 95

for Manchester United before shifting to Blackburn, Birmingham City

and Sunderland. He has also played 72 internationals for Trinidad

and Tobago, scoring 19 goals.

Yorke will soon begin a role as assistant coach with Manchester

United’s reserve team. Sydney coach Vitezslav Lavicka will leave

the team at the end of the A-League season.
