Sunderland's Yorke cleared to play for Trinidad and Tobago

Roy Keane has sidestepped another confrontation with Fifa vice president Jack Warner by allowing Dwight Yorke to play for Trinidad and Tobago. The Sunderland boss upset Warner by blocking Yorke's call-up earlier last month due to the midfielder's fitness troubles.

But Manchester United legend Keane said: "Dwight goes with my best wishes.

"He has had two or three weeks' training.

"My big issue the last month was that he wasn't 100% fit.

"I still don't think he is capable of going over there and playing three games in eight or nine days.

"He goes with my best wishes, and he knows that. But he wasn't fit enough to play two games last month.

"Nobody will ever change my mind on that, nobody, not even Mr Warner, whatever his name is. Nobody.

"He will go, but if somebody asked me if he can play the three games for them next month, I would say, 'no chance'.

"He is not fit enough, his body is not up to it.

"But he can go and have an influence in maybe one, possibly two of the games.

"That's up to their manager to decide."
