Ex-United striker happy with his trade-off
Dwight Yorke has revealed he stands by his party animal lifestyle despite the fact it cut short his Manchester United career. Ahead of the Carling Cup final between two of his former clubs, Yorke has said he would not swap his fun and games with the ladies for more time at Old Trafford, even with the benefit of hindsight.
He said: “Would I give up the women and nights out for another year at United? Would that make me happy? Would that make me the person I am today? I’m not so sure.
“What you see is what you get with me and that’s how I was. Even though my time was cut short at United because of my nights out and the women, I have no hang-ups about that, it made me feel happy. I went to United to win things and I achieved that.”
We are not convinced Sir Alex Ferguson will be incorporating that into tomorrow’s team-talk.
