Sol Campbell to manage in the Premier League by 2022 

English League Two side, Macclesfield Town have today announced the departure of manager Sol Campbell by mutual consent.

The news will have come as quite a surprise to fans of the Silkmen. The former Arsenal and England centre-back took over the club midway through last season and guided them to safety in League Two on the last day of the season, relegating Notts County in the process.

The team have won one and lost one of their opening two League Two games, with their most recent victory coming in the shape of a 3-0 home win against Leyton Orient at the weekend.

Campbell was heavily linked with a move away from the club in the summer after earning plaudits for his performances but eventually decided to stick with the team.

Where Campbell will end up next is anybody’s guess. The only club to not have a manager in the Football League at the moment are Championship side, Sheffield Wednesday, and Campbell is now second-favourite for that job at odds of 7.00. Whatever happens next, it is clear that Campbell has a bright future in management.

Sol Campbell Tips- Great value being offered 

Leading bookmaker Coral is now offering odds of 5.50 for Sol Campbell to manage in the Premier League by the end of 2022 after he left Macclesfield today. The former England international defender is also 26.00 with the firm to be manager of Arsenal by the end of 2025.

Those odds are incredibly generous, especially given that Campbell did such an exceptional job of managing Macclesfield in the eight short months that he was in charge there.

Campbell would be joining former England internationals Frank Lampard and Jonathan Woodgate who have both made their way into high profile management jobs over the last season or two. Clubs are looking to young and hungry managers to bring a little bit of something different to their club and Campbell has demonstrated he is capable of doing that.
