Just less than two months after his official unveiling, former England Football Team Captain Terry Butcher left the Philippines National Football Team Head Coach post.
The news broke out in social media last night (Philippine Time) as Terry Butcher himself broke the news to British media outlets via an official statement.
His main reason for quitting the job was mainly due to the challenges in making his plan come to fruition in the way that he wanted it to unfold.
