Dwight Yorke, Macarthur 'mutually' agree to part ways 13 games into A-League Men season

Dwight Yorke and Macarthur FC have parted ways with the coach departing just 13 A-League Men games into a two-year contract, the club announced on Saturday.

Macarthur are sixth in the A-League table with 17 points from 13 matches. Yorke's final game in charge was a 1-0 loss away to Adelaide United on Friday.

A statement released by Macarthur said the former Manchester United player and the club "mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately." The statement added that an agreement was reached on Saturday to allow Yorke "to pursue other opportunities."

Macarthur are now searching for their third manager in the space of a year after Yorke was brought in to replace Ante Milicic in May. The club also confirmed the departure of assistant manager Russell Latapy.

The Macarthur job was Yorke's first stint in management. He won the Australia Cup -- the Bulls' first piece of silverware -- and picked up five wins in the league.

"I would like to thank Dwight Yorke and his assistant Russell Latapy for their contribution towards our club and, in particular, Dwight leading Macarthur to our first silverware with our 2022 Australia Cup triumph," Macarthur chairman Gino Marra said in the statement.

Yorke had been hoping to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window with midfielder Daniel De Silva and striker Lachlan Rose both sidelined with injury.

"I want to thank the chairman Gino Marra, CEO Sam Krslovic, all the ownership group as well as all the staff and fans of Macarthur FC," Yorke said. "I leave the football club with a great team that will continue to challenge for more silverware."
