Former Tottenham and Arsenal defender Sol Campbell says he would be prepared for his first managerial role to be with a Non-League club.

Campbell who retired from playing in May 2012, has struggled to break into the management industry. Although he is currently working as assistant coach of Trinidad & Tobago, working alongside the former Wrexham,  centre-half Dennis Lawrence.

Campbell though wants to be a manager and speaking to the Guardian he said while he is struggling to get a role, he is happy to take on a role with a Non-League side.

“People may think that I just want to manage in the Premier League. I’m prepared to go to a non-league club. If they can’t pay me a salary just pay me a win bonus.

“I’m up for that. I won’t be up for that four or five years down the line, but definitely for the first year. I’m itching to start. I just need a chance, even just an interview in which I can say. ‘Take me for free and I’ll show you what I can do.'”
