Sol Campbell has turned his back on football management and says he is no longer applying for jobs.
The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender has tried to forge a career in the dugout and had spells at crisis clubs Macclesfield and Southend between 2018 and 2020.
He has not been able to find a job since and has spoken out in the past about his frustration at the lack of opportunities.
And the 49-year-old has revealed he is no longer chasing managerial roles.
“For me, it is about getting opportunities to fail,” said Campbell.
“Some of my peers have had jobs and it’s not worked out and then they have had opportunities again straight away, they’ve always had a lifeline.
