Dwight Yorke said he would consider coaching in India in the next couple years if ever the opportunity came knocking.

Speaking in Mumbai earlier this month while on a trip as a Manchester United ambassador, Yorke, who has been linked to join the new Indian Premier League as a player, said the game is growing in India.

“I will be qualified to become a manager in the next eight months when I get my license. In the next one year and a half, I will see from where I will start.”

Asked if he would love to coach the Indian team in future.

“Of course, I would love to. It’s not my first visit in India and I know football is passionate here,” said Yorke.

“I think India is passionate about football, especially the youth. I feel that tournaments like the proposed ISL (Indian Soccer League) would go a long way in raising the profile of the game in the country.”
