He is known to really want to be a manager at a club especially after not getting the Oxford United job a while back.

Sol Campbell on talkSPORT said: “I did go (for the job) and they didn’t accept me.

“Maybe it was a lack of experience things like that blah blah blah, but it’s a full circle.

“Experience? How do I get experience when I need a job to get experience?

“I don’t want to go too low that it’s a struggle and I don’t want to go too low that I’m under someone and thinking ‘what am I doing here?’

“I would rather be managing a club myself.

“I’m confident and it’s not like it’s rocket science to run a football club especially when you get to that level.

“If you’re intelligent enough and a quick learner you will learn pretty soon within two or three games what the team needs training wise to survive in that league, to get better, to get in the play-offs or even win the league.

“I’m intelligent enough, it’s not like I played on a fox and dog pitch all my life.

“I can’t believe some people, I’m one of the greatest minds in football and I’m wasted because of a lack of experience or maybe he talks his mind too much.”
