Leave on good terms and don't burn ur bridges. Don't set a precedent for black managers to be seen as opportunists.
The standard is not d same as in England. Apple and oranges  really.

What precedent? Black managers will always be far and few in between. When it comes to picking manager/coach, it is most of the time the owners prerogative. We may disagree with his tone. But he spoke his mind. But it has to be something that triggered him off. Maybe he was demanding effort by the players, which they were not able respond too. The only thing I see in this case, is that the shoe is on the other foot. Let's see if he can adjust to that.

Well said Deeks. When I read this account, I thought: Yorke saw his White managers take that strong stance for excellence and spoke to the group in a way that they accepted. He may have thought that he could do the same and expect his white employers to accept a black man talking to all his players "Black and white" the same. Not so the higher you go up in the corporate world.

More decisive was likely the conversation that took place behind closed doors, rather than the actual dressing room expressions.
