sport news Axed Macarthur FC coach Dwight Yorke says A-League and Australian football are ... trends now
Former Macarthur FC manager Dwight Yorke has slammed the A-League, declaring the struggling competition faces a dire future.
The 51-year-old, who left the Bulls in controversial circumstances in January after reportedly labelling his squad a 'pub team', stated 'Australian football has just got it totally wrong' in a number of key areas.
Yorke pointed to staging fixtures across summer as opposed to winter, no promotion and relegation and a lack of marquee talent due to the owners from the 12 clubs 'agreeing' when it comes to a salary cap.
'There is so much talent in Australia, but it is being killed by the system,' he told News Corp.
'The A-League is just too much of a comfort zone because all the  clubs are safe and it's just crying out for change.
