Ex-Villa, Man Utd, Sunderland striker Yorke eyes management

Former Premier League striker Dwight Yorke admits he would love to get involved in the management side of the game.

The 40-year old ex-Aston Villa, Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers and Sunderland man is currently completing his coaching badges and has revealed that he one day wants to step into a manager's role but only if it is the right one for him.

"I'm trying to have a crack at management. For me it's one opportunity that could happen but if it doesn't I'm happy to walk away," he told tribalfootball.com.

"I will stick around (in the coaching game) provided I got the right backing and it's not about what Dwight Yorke wants, it's about the people in charge of a football club and if they give you an opportunity.

"I know that no matter how much knowledge and know-how, everything you've gained over the years, if someone doesn't want to give you a chance then there's no point. I'm hoping that one opportunity comesalong and I can prove that I can manage players and what players expect."

He added: "Sir Alex Ferguson has been very gracious in letting me come back there (to United) and try to complete my coaching badges."
