‘Here he is, the boy who’s given me all this grey hair!’ Sir Alex Ferguson says whenever he comes across Dwight Yorke.
“That’s what he says every time he sees me,” Yorke said. “I had a fantastic four years at the club. Don’t forget, I’m a little island boy who’s come from the Caribbean not knowing football at all. If somebody said I was going to be playing for the greatest club in the world, in a Treble-winning year, knowing what I’d achieve in that time, I’d say ‘you’re fibbing me’. Great ride, great players, great manager, great experience. For the four years at Man United hopefully I contributed to the football, and that’s it. My time was up and I couldn’t do anything about that.”
