A survey from LiveScore has found which goals meant the most to fans over the last quarter of a century.

Whilst David Beckham’s famous free-kick for England against Greece in 2001 tops the list, plenty of Red Devils strikes appear in the top 10.

More from Yorke

Dwight Yorke has tipped Zinedine Zidane and Roberto De Zerbi to replace Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.

He told Footy Accumulators: “There aren’t too many other options out there – a lot of them have already had their chance. People are saying Graham Potter should take over, but he’s already had a chance at an elite club.

“Managers from smaller clubs should always grab the opportunity to take over a huge club at United. Elite clubs have bigger revenues, players, and expectations, and managers should jump at the chance. People say the pressure is huge, but that’s just part of the expectation. Everything is better at a big club!

“Those arriving from smaller clubs should aim to go forward instead of backward. Graham Potter had the chance at Chelsea, and I don’t think he’d suddenly succeed at Man United. He was a failure at Chelsea and he didn’t capitalise.

“I think Roberto De Zerbi may have a chance, but that remains to be seen. He’s one name to consider, but everybody else has had their chance. I don’t see anybody outside of Zidane and De Zerbi.”

United should hire ‘club legend’

Dwight Yorke believes Manchester United should hire a club legend as interim manager if they sack Erik ten Hag.

The Red Devils boss has come under mounting pressure in recent weeks due to the club’s poor campaign.

Former striker Yorke told Footy Accumulators: “The club may have to consider putting a club legend in charge on an interim basis, but I think Zinedine Zidane is the only option the board should seriously consider right now.

“Look at the stature he has in the game and what he achieved at Real Madrid.”
