Campbell made the tongue-in-cheek reference at the Cheltenham Literature Festival where he was promoting a new authorised biography of his life and career.

And when the 40-year-old defender was asked what he’d do to stop the Three Lions from conceding so many, he jokingly replied “Get rid of Gary Neville and get me in instead!”

“I’m doing my coaching badges with the Welsh FA. I am in the last year of the pro licence. Whether I’m going to use it straightaway I’m not too sure. Whether I can use it here I don’t know.

“But the career I have had should warrant me getting a job.”
