Arsenal Legend Could Be Set For Career In Politics

Posted by

Sol Campbell won two league titles and three FA Cups during a five-year spell at Arsenal.

Arsenal ‘Invincible’ Sol Campbell could be set for a career in politics after hinting that he is set to stand as a Conservative candidate for Kensington.

The position was held by Sir Malcolm Rifkind, but following the controversy surrounding him amid ‘cash for access’ allegations, Campbell may become his replacement.

Since retiring in 2011, the former Arsenal and Spurs defender hasn’t settled on a defined career with stints coaching the development squads and sporadic punditry appearances, but it seems Campbell has found his niche.

Appearing on Sky News’s Murnaghan programme, Campbell was asked if he was thinking of standing for the vacant MP role and cryptically answered; “I think about a lot of things,” – ironically a very political answer.

Having become increasing frustrated at not being taken seriously as a top-flight manager, Campbell may elect take a completely different, non-football based, career path.
