Man Utd legend Yorke eyeing Villa job

As he leads Aston Villa onto the Wembley pitch today, Martin O'Neill has been warned by Dwight Yorke that he wants his job!

Yorke is taking his coaching badges and wants to work in England.

"I'd like the Villa job for sure," he told the Observer. "I think that's a realistic target for a young ambitious manager like myself." Given his past, though, does Yorke believe any chairman would be brave enough to appoint him? "I don't see why not," he replies. "I've got a reputation but everybody's got a reputation. You should be judged on what you've done in football and there's not a lot of people who have a CV like mine.

"Ideally I'll get a chance in the Championship. People say I should go somewhere like Lincoln, like [Chris] Sutton did, but I don't want to be struggling down there. If Roy Keane can start in the Championship, why can't I?"
