Former England defender Sol Campbell has been appointed as manager of Macclesfield Town, the bottom club in the English Football League. It is the 44-year-old's first managerial position and he has taken charge with the Silkmen five points adrift at the foot of League Two. Campbell played 73 times for England and appeared in six major tournaments. He also won several domestic honours, including Premier League titles with Arsenal in 2001-02 and 2003-04. Macclesfield were National League champions last season but have struggled on their return to the EFL, winning only two of their 19 league games so far this season. BBC Radio Manchester reported on 23 November that Campbell had held initial talks with Macclesfield, and he was pictured on Tuesday arriving at the club's Moss Rose ground to finalise an 18-month contract. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46357879 Thought I'd make a thread on it as I know Campbell has been looking for a managerial job for quite a while now. For what ever reason, he hasn't been given a chance. Bit surprised an ex player of his CV hasn't been given a chance at a higher club i.e. Gerrard, Lampard, etc, but he now has a chance to prove himself at Macclesfield, although it'll be a very tough task.
