FORMER Manchester United star Dwight Yorke has decried a lack of black coaches in football after claiming to be frustrated by several attempts to secure a position.

The retired Trinidad and Tobago international, Yorke, who won the Premier League three times at United, in 1998-99, 1999-2000 and 2000-01, has claimed it is impossible to even secure an interview despite having the requisite coaching badges.
“If it’s not because of the colour of our skin, then tell me what it is?” the former Trinidad and Tobago player said.
“I’m speaking out about it. Be fair. At least give us an interview.”
Brighton’s Chris Hugh and Carlisle’s Keith Curle are the only managers from Black, Asian or any other ethnic minority in Europe’s top four divisions.
“Football is a global sport and black players have contributed to the global sport for a number of years,” he added.
“Look to the Premier League. Are there any black managers?
“Look at the Italian league? Are there any black managers?
“The list goes on,” Yorke said.
“People like myself, who have good credibility in the game and played at the very top level, you’d think would get a job or at least be given an interview, but you’re not even getting an interview.” (Sportamax.com)
