York, first managerial job in Australia


Dwight Yorke helped Manchester United achieve the treble in 1999.

Former Manchester United striker Dwight York took on his first managerial position at Australian A-League MacArthur FC.

The 50-year-old has signed a two-year contract and will replace Ante Milicic.

Macarthur, known as the Bulls, finished the season in 7th place and barely made it to the playoffs.

“I am very excited to be taking on the first senior full-time head coaching role at Macarthur FC,” said Yorke.

“Playing in my first A-League men’s season, I kept watching the competition and I know both Australia’s football and fan needs.

“I look forward to adding positive contributions and improving the game at every level. But of course my main focus is to give the Bulls success and the style of football that has defined me as a player.”

Former Trinidad and Tobago international York has scored 123 goals in England’s first division and has played for Aston Villa, Blackburn, Birmingham City, Sunderland and Manchester United.

He was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1999 treble-winning team.
