Stephen Constantine has been a globetrotting gaffer ever since he embarked on taking his first assignment with the Nepal National Team in 1999. Since then he has gone on to coach at clubs and countries in Europe, Africa and Asia over the past 20 years.
Of course, he is notably known for his two stints as the Indian national team head coach. He guided the Blue Tigers to their best run, breaking into the FIFA Top 100 ranking and also qualifying the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
He has also his own autobiography, From Delhi to the Den, which chronicles his journey as a football coach. The book was nominated for the Football Writers’ Association Book of the year in 2018. I am proud to say that it is a personal favourite of mine.
