Bakcell, the first mobile operator and leading mobile internet provider of Azerbaijan is pleased to announce that Dwight Yorke, the legendary striker of Manchester United will visit Baku within the frames of partnership between Bakcell and Manchester United, the company's press release says on Friday.
Yorke, United's smiling assassin was one of the leading names in the club's unforgettable Treble season. After joining from Aston Villa in September 1998, the Trinidad and Tobago international striker enjoyed a debut campaign bagging 29 goals to finish top scorer as the Reds swept the honours. Yorke's on-field mutual understanding with Andy Cole had formed one of the best attacking tandems in the history of modern football.
Thereafter, the arrival of Ruud van Nistelrooy limited Yorke's involvement, but he did turn into an icon in hearts of most United fans after his unforgettable 22-minute hat-trick against Arsenal. Dwight left Old Trafford in 2002, but his returns to Old Trafford as an opponent invariably provoked a warm reception from the grateful home support.
