Australian Football: Yorke named Macarthur boss

Macarthur have confirmed former Manchester United star Dwight Yorke as their new head coach for the next two A-League seasons.

The Bulls had a disappointing campaign when missing out on finals and will be looking to bounce back in the new campaign with Yorke at the helm.

Milicic departure

Ante Milicic looked set to stay on as head coach but then decided to move on for family reasons and Macarthur have wasted no time in appointing his successor.

Yorke has a connection with the A-League after playing in the inaugural season for Sydney FC, who went on to win the grand final in 2005-06.

Yorke is delighted to have landed the Macarthur job and is excited for the future.

"Having played in the inaugural A-League Men's season I have continually followed the competition and am aware of both the footballing and fan demands in Australia," Yorke said.

"I look forward to adding a positive contribution and improve the game at all levels, however of course my primary focus will be with the Bulls, to deliver them success and a style of football that defined me as a player."

Man for the job

The Bulls are delighted with the appointment and are in no doubt that Yorke is the man to take them forward.

"Dwight's football exposure and achievements speak volumes," Bulls chief executive Sam Krslovic said. "As a young club, the appointment of Dwight is synonymous with our evolution."
