Soccer-Former England captain Butcher appointed Philippines head coach

Former England captain Terry Butcher said becoming a national team coach was the "next step" in his career after being appointed as the head coach of Philippines national team on a two-year deal. "People asked me whether I'd fallen out of love with the game but it felt more like the game had fallen out of love with me," Butcher told BBC Sport. The 59-year-old's first task, after joining in August, would be to prepare the national team for the ASEAN Football Federation Championship in November before making their Asia Cup debut next year.
