Sol Campbell has a message for Macclesfield fans… #solcampbell

A post shared by Match of the Day (@bbcfootball) on

He said: “I think I have got to take this opportunity with both hands. I’ve studied a lot, and yes this is my first full-time job – I understand that – but I have got to start somewhere. I’m honoured to be here and I will work my socks off.”

“I will bring all of my wealth of experience [to this job]. I know football inside out. I know how to manage people. I can communicate and I’ve looked at what I can do at the club. I think it’s a great place for me to start.

“I know some Macclesfield fans will probably be saying ‘what is going on here?’ But you’ve got an international footballer, who has been one of the best footballers in the world, coming to your club. I think it’s a nice mutual balance there.”
