Yorke: Fortune Doesn’t Get Enough Credit

Former Manchester United striker, Dwight Yorke, says that South African midfielder, Quinton Fortune, was a better footballer than many people give him credit for.

Speaking to Soccer-Laduma recently, the 1999 treble-winning Red Devil spoke very highly of his old teammate, explaining that, had he been at another club, he would have featured much more than what he did.

 

Fortune spent seven years with United before leaving to join Bolton Wanderers, although many of his appearances were limited to substitute appearances.

 

Yorke told the crew, “I think he was more talented than a lot of people give him credit for. I think if he’d been somewhere else he’d have played a lot more, because of the quality that United had he didn’t play much, but I think he was much better than what his achievements show.”

 

Sir Alex Ferguson, who recently announced his retirement from football after 26 years at Old Trafford, was a big fan of Fortune’s versatility and commitment through his career at the club and has been pivotal in Fortune’s efforts to earn his coaching badges in the near future.
