Sol Campbell: ‘I’m prepared to go to a non-league club and just get a win bonus’

The former England defender is so frustrated by the refusal of clubs to give him a manager’s job – or even an interview – that he is willing to ‘start in the gutter’ and work without a salary

The former England defender may look relaxed as he sips a cappuccino outside an Italian restaurant off the King’s Road but it soon becomes clear that he is at his wits’ end about, as he puts it, “building another career”. Campbell has standing, qualifications and coaching experience but he cannot make the breakthrough and such is his frustration that the 42-year-old is willing to offer his services for free.
