Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Kearyn Baccus’ Australian A-League club Macarthur FC was labelled as a ‘pub team’ by Dwight Yorke just before he left his head coach job at the club. 

Yorke won eight, drew two and lost six but won the Australia Cup during his time with Baccus’ club but wasn’t impressed with he saw in their defeat to Adelaide United in his match.

According to reports from Down Under, Yorke made a scathing speech after that lose which included labelling the club as a ‘pub team’.

Following that attack on Baccus and his teammates which included questioning the levels of professionalism within the playing group and the standard of the game in Australia, Yorke parted ways with the club the next day and has since been replaced by Mile Sterjovski.

Baccus played 85 minutes in that defeat and was in the dressing room afterward when Yorke threw a tantrum.
