Peter Butler Menamatkan Kontrak Dengan KAFA

Kelantan part ways with Peter Butler

The Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) have announced the termination of coach Peter Butler's contract on Tuesday afternoon.
In a press conference held at Kota Bahru, a KAFA spokesman said that they were forced to part ways when Butler stood his ground on certain policies which conflicted with their interests, although both parties insisted their relationship was ended on amicable terms.
The 45-year-old will receive a payout as agreed in the contract he had signed just a couple of months ago.
It has been speculated the Kelantan managerial vacancy will be filled by Bojak Hodak, the former MyTeam coach, who was present beside Kelantan president Tan Sri Annuar Musa during a recent friendly against Great Eastern-YEO's S.League outfit SAFFC.
Butler remained poignant in parting, saying: "I have officially left Kelantan today [Tuesday].
"At least I leave with Kelantan on top [of the Malaysia Super League]."
He was also adamant the decision to end his time at the helm of Kelantan had nothing to do with money, and insisted the only consideration he had was his future as a coach.
"I can't disclose what I agreed," Butler added. "It's confidential but the decision was not based on money. It was what was right for me and my future.
"It was nowhere near about the money. It was a nominal sum. But as I said it was a career decision.
"My career is more important than money."
Kelantan are currently leading the Malaysia Super League, two points ahead second-placed Perak, and are next in action on Saturday when they entertain Negri Sembilan.

Detik getir Butler, KAFA hari ini

PETER James Butler yang menghilangkan diri selepas Persatuan Bola Sepak Kelantan (KAFA) bertindak merehatkannya daripada tugas, akhirnya mengambil keputusan pulang ke Kota Bharu bagi mencari jalan penyelesaian terbaik berkaitan statusnya dalam pasukan.

Dengan perkembangan terbaru itu, keputusan jurulatih dari England itu sekurang-kurangnya memberi sedikit petanda positif semua permasalahan membabitkan dirinya dengan KAFA akan diselesaikan dengan cara baik.

Saya minta maaf tapi saya mesti balik ke Kota Bharu hari ini (semalam) juga. Lepas itu, esok (hari ini) saya akan ada satu perjumpaan dengan pihak KAFA bagi membincangkan perkara ini, katanya ketika dihubungi, semalam.
Pada pertemuan Butler dengan pengurus pasukan, Azman Ibrahim, 17 Februari lalu, konflik yang melanda dalam pengurusan dalaman pasukan pendahulu Liga Super itu boleh dianggap selesai selepas kedua-dua pihak dilihat mencapai kata sepakat.

Bagaimanapun, tidak lama selepas itu, penyokong setia The Red Warriors sekali lagi dikejutkan apabila KAFA secara tiba-tiba merehatkan Butler daripada tugasnya ketika seluruh pasukan sedang meraikan kejayaan layak ke pusingan kedua Piala FA.

Keadaan menjadi lebih panas apabila laporan kelmarin menyebut Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO), Akademi Al-Hamra Red Warriors (Army) yang baru, Bojan Hodak menjadi calon terbaik untuk menggantikan Butler sebagai ketua jurulatih musim ini.

Namun ditanya mengenai status itu termasuk jawatannya dalam pasukan, Butler sekali lagi enggan mengulas.
Cukup... saya akan ada perjumpaan dengan KAFA esok (hari ini) dan dalam tempoh sehari dua ini saya tidak akan beri apa-apa komen, katanya.
