British Football Coaches...
I am ready for the next challenge...
When Stephen Constantine reflects on a career that has so far taken him from London to Sudan via India, Nepal, North Korea and Rwanda among 80 other countries, he does so with an air of understatement.
His journey is a remarkable, complex one that he describes as a privilege. Yet the 57-year-old plays much of it down, almost surprised that there can be so much interest in his nomadic existence.

FROM DELHI TO THE DEN
After being asked by my good friend Owen Amos, a senior journalist for the BBC, to write my autobiography 3 years ago, it is now available!
It tells my story as Football's most travelled coach. From the Cypriot fourth division to the India National Team - twice!
I really hope it is a good read for you all!
