Campbell wants to manage Arsenal

Sol Campbell has his sights set on managing Arsenal one day, ESPN has reported, as the former Gunners defender begins his coaching badges at his old club.

Campbell called an end to his playing days last summer and has started the process of earning his coaching badges – and part of the course has sent him to Arsenal, the club at which he had two spells, first between 2001 and 2006, then again in the 2009/10 season. Campbell won the Premier League twice and the FA Cup three times with the Gunners, all in his initial tenure.

And Campbell’s agent revealed that even though his client is only just starting out in the world of coaching, he sees big things in his future. “Sol’s doing his badges and I dare say one day he will be a manager,” Sky Andrew said, adding: “And if he does decide to be a manager he’ll be a top manager because of his character.

He goes back to Arsenal to do a few of his qualifications anyway and it was great partnership when he was there, so why can’t it be in the future? He’s not ruling anything out,” Andrew added.

Campbell started his career at Tottenham Hotspur, making a controversial switch across north London after exploiting the Bosman rule to move clubs on a free transfer. The 38-year-old also played for Portsmouth, winning the FA Cup, Notts County and Newcastle, as well as winning 73 England caps.
