Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke admits he has the management bug.

The former Aston Villa striker is keen to take on the manager's job at Villa Park.

“One day I will come back and manage the football club. That's how I feel. I have always believed that,” he told the Express & Star.

"My time at Villa got overshadowed in the eyes of some people because I went to Man United. But I know deep down this is my club.

"It's the first result I check for. I am more of a Villa fan than a Man United fan, even though my association at Old Trafford is also great. Villa is very, very close to my heart.

"They were fantastic years in claret and blue. I played with great players and under great managers.

"I have so many great memories of my time at Villa Park. Of course, my biggest achievement was winning the League Cup in 1996 and scoring at Wembley. Things don't come much better than that.

"I just had the time of my life at Villa.”
