Leon Bailey Pays Homage to Craig Butler

December 18, 2020

Winger for Bayer Leverkusen and National player, Leon Bailey has recently posted a photo with some very kind words to his adopted father Craig Butler amid the legal issues that the Pheonix All-star coach has been going through.

In the photo posted by Bailey, he could be seen in the picture with the Pheonix All-star coach in an embrace at a football match.


For the photo the young footballer captioned “You’ve been there for everyone you consider as a family whether it’s by blood or not, you’ve shown me the meaning of family and for that, I’m forever grateful”.

Further in the caption, he stated ” The more dem a fight a di stronger we get”

Craig Butler has been getting a heavy bashing from his son and the public since his son decided he was tired of the abuse and began tweeting about what he has been going through, even showing wounds received at the hands of his father.

Kyle’s mother has also been in defence of her son as well, referring to the behaviour of Craig as being narcissistic and so supports the legal moves his son has initiated.

On November 30th Kyle made a series of posts, showing his badly cut hand, that he said he received from an attack by his father at a training session at Mona High School.


Earlier Kyle, a former under 23 national player tweeted, “Expect a response that is full of lies and people coming out to defend him”.

Leon Bailey might be one such person who the young Bulter expected to defend is father as he is doing now.

Kyle later added that he has all the proof in his hands.


Earlier Craig also dismissed claims of him being abusive to his son and that his son is going down the wrong path.

When the young man saw the news article containing the information his father gave, he reposted it on his social media account with laughing, crying emoji and the caption ” A stick…”.

On a more positive note, Bayer Leverkusen and Leon “LB9” Bailey are flying high.

The Jamaican winger scored twice against Sk Slavia Praha as well as made an assist last week Thursday in a UEFA Europa League encounter. Leverkusen qualifies from their group with a game in hand and are the group toppers.

Bundesliga update: Leverkusen are now top of the German Bundesliga on 25 points, one point ahead of the elite Bayern Munich. Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg (in 4th place on 21 points) remain the only unbeaten teams in the German top flight after the 11th round.
