Stephen Constantine

India, 2015-Present

“The first thing is to respect the people. Respect the country. And then think, well, all I’m bringing is my football.”

Stephen Constantine is in his second stint as manager of India, but the London-born coach has also spent periods leading the national sides of Nepal, Malawi, Sudan and Rwanda. He tells The Coaches’ Voice about the impact those experiences have had on him, both personally and in his approach to management.

“From Delhi to the Den: The story of football’s most travelled manager” is out now, published by deCoubertin Books
