Where is Dwight Yorke now?
Former Manchester United and Aston Villa legend Dwight Yorke finally hung up his boots in 2008 after three seasons playing under former team-mate Roy Keane.
Yorke enjoyed a lot of success over his 20-year playing career winning three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League with Man United as well as the League Cup with Aston Villa.
Internationally he represented the Trinidad and Tobago national team with whom he won 74 caps and featured in the side’s World Cup qualifying matches from 1990 to 2010 (which is a record).
Upon retiring from playing Yorke briefly assisted the manager of the Trinidad and Tobago national team for their four remaining games of their 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Yorke now works in the media as a pundit and analyst on Sky Sports and beIN Sports for their Premier League coverage.
He also works as a global club ambassador for Manchester United travelling the world and promoting the club’s brand.
Yorke has completed his Level B coaching badges and in October 2015 after Aston Villa had sacked Tim Sherwood, announced that the club should appoint him as their new manager despite his lack of managerial experience.
Yorke claimed that his intimate knowledge of the club he spent ten years at would provide him with the necessary experience to turn the clubs fortunes around.
Villa appointed French manager and former Arsenal player as Remi Garde as their new manager soon after Yorke’s claims.
In February 2017, Yorke was denied entry to the United States because he had an Iranian stamp in his passport from a charity game he had played over there a couple of years previous.
He was denied entry due to President Donald Trump’s new border laws.
