Butler plans home-coming party

Publishing Date : 02 September, 2019


Peter Butler is anxious to face Botswana’s Senior National Team on September 30th after signing a one year deal with Liberia Football Association (LFA).

Butler’s Liberia is expected to be part of the party as Botswana celebrates 53 years of independence in the next coming month. Like Major David Bright, Butler was furious when Botswana Football Association (BFA) sacked him a month after new leadership was ushered into office in 2016. He then clinched a contract with South Africa’s Platinum Stars (now Cape Umoya) before falling into oblivion two months into Stars’ dugout.

The controversial mentor seeks redemption against former employers and time will tell whether he was sacked too early. Butler finds Liberia in a disastrous situation after the team failed to appear in last two consecutive editions of the AFCON finals. The profile of the Brighton was regarded as interesting and worth testing when employed back in 2014. But little was said about the British except that he was to cost little to the association as compared to then Uganda coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic when selection was conducted.

Reports mentioned at the eve of his appointment that Keith Masters, the former BFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO)-who is also of British origin, convinced the sometimes stubborn National Executive Committee about this coach and further showed that he exemplify the massive influence he will have in Botswana football.
