Now he's at a little-known Malaysian third division club, expected to work wonders -- and yet he wouldn't want it any other way.

The increasingly fleeting nature of professional football is often in contrast to the longer term loyalty of fans. That was underlined last weekend when an admirer of ex-England defender-turned-coach Gary Stevens flew 9500 kilometres to see his hero on the touchlines for Thai Premier League club Army United FC.
