Yorke focuses on
Uefa A License
Dwight Yorke is currently
studying for his Uefa A Licence
and has revealed that the former
Old Trafford supremo Air Alex
Ferguson has always made time
to help him along his coaching
However, the 41-year-old recog-
nises that there is a changing of
the guard in management circles
and that many clubs now desire
young and progressive coaches and
He said: "Clubs are looking for
younger managers coming through
because it is a cycle; Sir Alex and
others are coming out the picture
a little bit now and it is about
young managers coming through.
"The game has also changed
from 20 years ago to where it is
now, so the boys who are now
coming out of the game have a
wealth of knowledge and it is all
"It is all about whether someone
is prepared to give you that opportunity
to really make an impact with your
knowledge and what you have achieved
over the years."
He added: "I have got a lot of expe-
rience from Sir Alex Ferguson and an
insight into what he was like personally;
even to this day I am very grateful that
up until his retirement I was very much
involved with seeing him and getting
knowledge from him.
The trademark smile and silky skills
which Yorke used to illuminate the Pre-
mier League were all on show during
the practical sessions on the A Licence
course earlier this month.
He explained: "I am not doing it just
to say I have actually got the badge.
There's a purpose behind doing it.
"If I wasn't interested in being a
manager, I wouldn't be here at The FA
headquarters doing my A Licence at
this present time. My full intention is
to be a manager one day."
Densill delight as Leo
"It s maybe the best thing that could
happen to our football right now."
Those were the words of current
T&T captain Densill Theobald as he
reacted to Leo Beenhakker's return as
director of football at the T&T Football
Theobald played under Benhakker
in 2006 and earned much trust from
the Dutchman who used him in all
three matches at the Germany finals.
"A lot of coaches have pushed me
on but Leo Beenhakker played a massive
part in me becoming the player I am
today. His faith in me and the way he
managed me was second to none and
his ability to do this is what brings out
the best in players and the team itself.
I'm quite excited to work with him
again and I believe this is a positive
step for us.
"I know the players are looking for-
ward to it and I hope and pray that the
local coaches can also follow him and
try to learn from him as well. Coop-
eration will be a key factor for this to
