Former Manchester United star appointed Macarthur FC ALM coach

Former Manchester United forward Dwight Yorke has been confirmed as the new head coach of A-League Men’s (ALM) club Macarthur FC.

Yorke has signed a deal to lead the Bulls for the next two ALM seasons in what will be the ex-Trinidad and Tobago international’s first senior coaching role.

He will replace Ante Milicic, who has stepped down after two seasons as the Bulls’ foundation coach to move to Croatia for family reasons.

Yorke is no stranger to Australian football, having been Sydney FC’s marquee player in the inaugural ALM season in 2005/06, as the Sky Blues went on to win the first championship.

“Having played in the inaugural A-League Men’s season I have continually followed the competition and am aware of both the footballing and fan demands in Australia,” Yorke said in a statement.

“I look forward to adding a positive contribution and improving the game at all levels, however, of course my primary focus will be with the Bulls, to deliver them success and a style of football that defined me as a player.”

Yorke scored 123 goals in the English Premier League during his playing career and was part of the United team that claimed the 1998/99 European Champions League title.

As well as playing for United, Yorke had stints at Aston Villa, Blackburn, Birmingham City and Sunderland.

After reaching the finals in their inaugural season in 2020/21, the Bulls missed out on play-offs this season, finishing seventh on the ladder.

Yorke will also coach the A-League All Stars in a friendly against Spanish giants Barcelona in Sydney on May 25.
