National team captain Dwight Yorke has expressed disappointment on not being able to still play in the English Premiership. But at the same time, he has not regretted his first season with Sydney FC in Australia and he has all intentions of giving his best for the “Soca Warriors” in the upcoming 2006 World Cup.

Yorke was recently hoping to sign on loan with an English club but after that failed due to transfer window regulations Yorke ended up training at Manchester United and is expected to line up this month for a Manchester United team of the 90s against Crystal Palace in an exhibition match .

“It’s a great feeling to be playing the kind of football I have for the past few months and something I have enjoyed doing over the years. It’s  little bit disappointing not playing in the Premiership because I still feel I can do the job there but it’s not to be at this point in time.  However I try to enjoy my football despite of all of that,” Yorke said.

“I went through a little bit of a phase where I wasn’t playing as much football as I would want to. But the game against Iceland showed that I can still compete with the best of them and I am prepared to keep going.”

The Sydney FC skipper and Coventry City striker Stern John were listed among the best 100 players to look out for at the 2006 World Cup in the Sporting Legends Magazine. Yorke is also featured in the autumn issue’06 issue of hip hop Rhyme and Reason Magazine. Yorke is featured in exclusive interviews also done with the likes of Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Voletta Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mother), Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown, John Legend, Sean Paul, Will.I.Am (The Black Eyed Peas) and Juelz Santana.
