Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey has thrown his support behind his agent and adopted father, founder, and CEO of Phoenix All-Stars Football Academy, Craig Butler.
Butler is currently embroiled in a legal dispute with his biological son, Kyle Butler. Kyle, who is a former national youth footballer is accusing his dad of physical abuse.
But speaking on the case publicly for the first time, Bailey contends that he was “forever grateful” to the man who guided him to international stardom, and “showed him the meaning of family”.
“You’ve been there for everyone you consider family whether it’s by blood or not; you’ve showed me the meaning of family and for that I’m forever grateful,” Bailey posted on his Instagram story, along with a photo of himself being warmly embraced by Butler.
“More Dem A Fight A D Stronger We Get,” he added in the caption.
