Phoenix Academy CEO Craig Butler says Leon Bailey’s strike against Trinidad and Tobago reminds him of the hard work Bailey put into training when he was with Phoenix Academy. Butler outlined that he could see the defiance and resilience in Bailey’s goal for Jamaica.
As it regards Whisper’s strike, Butler said he missed it because he was travelling, but nevertheless, he congratulated the 17-year-old who earlier this year signed a pre-contract with London-based club Chelsea along with the rest of the Reggae Boyz squad.
Craig also had a few words for the JFF as it relates to Phoenix Academy players getting call-ups to Reggae Boyz national teams and Andrew Price, who said JPL top marksmen Trivante Stewart and Collin Anderson should have been selected ahead of Whisper Richards.
“Believe nuh Jamaica and the man them who deh deh a hate hate hate hate stop now nuh just believe nuh Andrew Price stop nuh you don’t think its time now uno just easy believe now man, and I don’t want to hear about the past and this and that a talking about now,” Says Butler.
He continued, “now Leon has shown you how to deal with it well done Chippy yeah, Whisper in ten minutes he comes on him showed you the attitude you should have never die never give up,” Craig Butler declared.
