Sven-Goran Eriksson admits he feels personally let down by Sol Campbell's departure from Notts County.

The former Tottenham, Arsenal and Portsmouth defender quit the Coca-Cola League Two club just five weeks after signing a five-year contract reportedly worth in the region of £40,000 a week.He made only one appearance for the Magpies - a 2-1 league defeat at Morecambe last weekend.

Speaking about Campbell's decision to leave, director of football Eriksson told Sky Sports News: "I am very disappointed, very much so because we signed him and we thought we should have him for longer."

Eriksson was instrumental in bringing Campbell to Meadow Lane having managed the player during his time as England boss.

Asked if he felt personally let down by the 35-year-old, the Swede added: "Yes a little bit, but I think everybody has the same feeling - the players, the coaching staff, the directors and the fans because he is a big name and an important player."
