Super Eagles Legend Finidi George has lent credence to recent claims by Former Manchester United star Dwight Yorke on the plight of black coaches in getting managerial jobs in the big leagues of europe.
Arguably the most famous sportsman from his native trinidad , Yorke, an integral member of Manchester United’s treble winning class of ’99 had applied for the vacant managerial role at old club Aston Villa, where he spent nine solid seasons as a player, scoring 73 league goals in 231 games but despite been highly recommended by his mentor Ferguson, he wasn’t offered an interview.
“Dwight Yorke just said the bitter truth about racism. I’ll want to appeal to you guys (media) to push for our brothers,” George said.
“We don’t even have a chance in Europe and we’re struggling in our country because our administrators don’t know what blacks go through in the diapora”, the ex Mallorca Winger concluded.
