Yorke, who spent four years at Manchester United, earned his manager’s badges with the Red Devils and has been looking for an opportunity to take his first steps in management.

Macarthur jumped at the chance to recruit Yorke, and United recommended the 50-year-old’s services. Although the agreement is not yet complete, the same medium reports that all that is waiting is the signing of the documentation.

Yorke will take charge of the A-League All Stars when they take on Barcelona at the end of the month. He told ESPN recently that he had identified the A-League as good competition to start his career.

The 50-year-old spent a year in Australia as a player, joining Sydney FC in 2005.

‘I am announcing to the world – with the [APL] and Danny [Townsend, the APL’s managing director] giving me that opportunity, that I’m finally qualified and ready for a lead role,” Yorke said.

‘I think that will make some headlines. And then if there’s an opportunity that presents itself, then I have to look at it.’

Yorke won the A-League title in the competition’s inaugural season in 2005, before returning to England after being signed by Sunderland.

Players such as Alessandro del Piero, David Villa and Daniel Sturridge have all followed in Yorke’s footsteps and played for A-League clubs.
