Ex-Man Utd star Yorke planning stellar performance against Everton

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke plans to be as close to his best as he can be when he steps out for Sydney FC against Everton on Saturday night.

The Trinidad & Tobago star will play his farewell game for the Sky Blues who he led to the inaugural A-League title in the 2005/06 season in his only venture into Australia's top flight.

The reigning A-League champions have allowed Yorke to come back for one final match against Tim Cahill and the Toffees and he has confirmed that he still has some tricks up his sleeve.

"If I didn't think I could do it and if I didn't think I could give a good account of myself I wouldn't be here," Yorke said.

"I don't take the Mick out of people and I don't take the Mick certainly out of myself - I don't want to be doing that. I didn't turn up here just for turning up's sake. I'm here to give a good account of myself and that's what I'm hoping for.

"I just want everybody to know I'm not here looking for a new contract or anything, I'm coming here to give my best obviously because I'm competitive like that.

"I'm looking forward to play against a Premier League team and I'm sure all the boys from Sydney as well are looking forward to that, because that opportunity doesn't come along very often. It'll just be good to see if I can still compete at that level."

Sydney take on Everton at ANZ Stadium this Saturday night, July 10, at 7:30 AEST.
