  18. Sol Campbell leaves Macclesfield Town

    More now on the news that Sol Campbell has left Macclesfield Town.

    The 44-year-old former England defender took over in November 2018 with the Silkmen bottom of League Two.

    Campbell kept them in the English Football League thanks to a run of just two defeats in their final 10 games.

    "Macclesfield Town gave me a great beginning in the managerial side of the game and fantastic learning curve which I am truly grateful for," he said.

    "I would like to thank all the players and staff for their support during my time at the Moss Rose and also all the loyal fans, whose belief at the end of last season ultimately played a tangible role in our success."

    Campbell began his managerial career four years after describing the lack of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) managers in English football as a "sad indictment" of the game.

    Following his appointment, Campbell said he had submitted "at least 12-15 applications" before he eventually landed the job at Macclesfield.
