Dwight Yorke retires from Football

YorkeToday, Dwight Yorke has decided to hang up his boots. The former Manchester United striker has a flourish career in England and has won the Uefa Champions League with United in 1999.

Yorke, 37 years old, was released by Sunderland at the end of last season and now he decides it is the time to concentrate in his personal life.

Yorke moved to United in August 1998 for £12.6m and scored 64 in 151 appearances for United. He moved to Blackburn Rovers in 2002 after losing his position for Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Dwight couldn’t hide his love for the club and the people who helped him to progress during his career including Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I’ve been blessed really. I’ve played alongside some of the greatest players the Premier League has ever seen in Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Peter Schmeichel, and played for the greatest manager in Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I’ll always count myself lucky. I was a boy on a beach from a little Caribbean island that got the chance to fulfil his dream of winning trophies at the highest level and captaining his country in their first ever World Cup finals.”

We would like to thank Dwight Yorke for his time with Man United and wish him good luck in his life.

Don’t forget to enter the competition to win Manchester United home shirt.
