Dwight Yorke reveals why Sir Alex Ferguson once called him a failure


Yorkie is most fondly remembered by United fans for the part he played in our Treble-winning campaign, a season when he and striker partner Andy Cole struck fear into the hearts of defenders at home and abroad.

Dwight netted 29 times in 51 appearances during his maiden term at the Reds, but was actually disappointed with that haul.

“I should have scored more goals. I was disappointed I only scored 29 goals, even though that was unbelievable in my first year,”

Yorke told presenter Stewart Gardner and regular hosts Ben Thornley, Wes Brown, Danny Webber and David May. 

“I think the manager robbed me of a few games when I felt I should have played and could have scored goals,”

Yorke added, with a chuckle. 

“He substituted me when I was on the verge of scoring a hat-trick. I was on two goals and he takes me off to have a rest! You look back and think ‘bloody hell, gaffer, you robbed me of a few goals over the years’.
