Ex-Manchester United star Nicky Butt has returned to England after a disappointing spell in Hong Kong. The 35-year-old joined South China in January, with the AFC Cup and the First Division championship the club's prime targets. But the Caroliners were knocked out of the regional tournament in the penultimate round and lost the league title to rivals Kitchee. It is believed Butt was being paid per match. South China's last league match is against Tai Chung and they are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
