Career

When the young winger was six years old, he began playing for Kingston’s Phoenix All-Star Academy. Craig Butler, Bailey’s adopted father, owns the academy. Bailey joined Phoenix when he was quite young. He was, however, serious about pursuing a football career and took his training seriously. Because of his determination, the Kingston native’s adoptive father accompanied him, along with Kyle (Craig’s biological son) and Atkinson (another adopted son), to Europe for testing.

Leon Bailey Butler joined the Austrian club Liefering, where he spent two years acclimating to European conditions. However, he wasn’t making any headway at the club since FIFA regulations prohibit recruiting non-EU players under the age of 18. Leon Bailey Butler then joined AS Trencin in Slovakia, where he trained until the age of 18. Bailey then joined Belgian club Genk, where he received his first professional contract in 2015. He made his debut the same year and quickly became a cult icon by the conclusion of his rookie season in 2015/16.

The couple made their first public appearance in 2020, shortly after they revealed their relationship status to their supporters. When it comes to Stephanie, she is a social media sensation and YouTuber.
