Manchester United legend Dwight York has left MacArthur. The sudden breakup came just thirteen games into his two-year contract with the A-League side.
On Saturday, the former United star held a meeting with Macarthur Chairman Gino Marra.
He entered into a mutual agreement to terminate York’s contract (via The Daily Mail).
In the blink of an eye
Dwight Yorke’s stay at the club was his first experience of coaching at an adult level after a brilliant career rich in trophies.
York received his coaching badges at Old Trafford under his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Although his stay at MacArthur ended immediately after it began, the ex-United star could extend his stay in Australia by moving to Sydney FC, an A-League rival.
Sydney has sacked former manager Steve Corica after a poor start to the season. The 51-year-old Yorke, who played for the club in the first season of the 2005 A-League, may well fill the vacancy.
Pressure is mounting on the five-time champions, who have had a poor start to this season despite hopes of putting a terrible 2021-2022 campaign behind them. Sydney also failed to reach the final.
MacArthur issued a statement saying York would like to “pursue other opportunities.”
The confessions sparked rumors that York could return to his former club as a coach.
The outgoing York said the following:
“I want to thank Chairman Gino Marr, CEO Sam Krslovich, the entire group of owners, as well as all employees, fans of FC MacArthur.
