Published 1 Comments

Former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell could return to the club as a coach or even as manager, according to his agent.

Campbell, who was part of Arsenal's invincible team back in 2003, is currently doing his coaching badges and regularly goes back to Arsenal to fulfil coach and his agent believes that his managerial career could be a successful one at the highest level.

The former Tottenham and Arsenal man has stopped playing the game since announcing his retirement back in May after short stints with Notts County, Newcastle United and Arsenal.

The defender's agent, Sky Andrew, has revealed in an interview with the Metro that the Englishman returns to Arsenal frequently and does some coaching at the London Colney and he believes his could one day become the Arsenal manager once Arsene Wenger calls it a day.

Andrew said: "Sol’s doing his badges and I dare say one day he will be a manager, 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."

The ex-England international made over 200 appearances for the Gunners over two spells with the north London club.

He helped the side to win two Premier League titles and two FA Cup trophies during his time at the club.

Campbell also scored Arsenal's only ever Champions League final goal when they lost 2-1 to Barcelona in Paris back in 2006.
