The life and times of Stephen Constantine


'Nomadic. That's what people call me.'

In 1978, aged just 16, Stephen Constantine left his family home in Cyprus. He didn't know it then, but it was a start of a journey that would take him around the world, in pursuit of the global game. Nearly 40 years on and Stephen is still on that same path, albeit with a far greater dose of experience, and a host of new experiences to boot.

A FIFA instructor when not managing, Stephen has taken his coaching to far-flung places such as Tehran and Pyongyang, and has worked extensively in America, England, Cyprus and Greece. He has also managed more national teams than any other Englishman: Nepal, India, Malawi, Sudan and Rwanda.

He is now back in India for a second time with the national team. This short video helps to tell his story, which is covered extensively in his autobiography, From Delhi to the Den. Nomadic barely covers it.
