Former Arsenal international Sol Campbell has said he is working towards coaching the Black Stars of Ghana.
“Yes, why not” he responded to Nii Arday Clegg on Starr FM Tuesday January 19, 2016 when asked if he would like to coach the Ghanaian national team.
“Yes, you never know…I am working towards the job,” he added.
Campbell is in the country under the patronage of Primeval Media, who are organising two friendly matches to preach peace ahead of the November polls.
Campbell’s team, the World XI, which will be made up of players like Edgar Davids, Emile Heskey, Didier Drogba, Samuel Eto’o, Steve Mcmanaman, Patrick Kluivert and others, will play a two-legged game with Asante Kotoko and the Black Stars of Ghana in June.
The former England international began his career with Tottenham Hotspurs in December 1992. He spent nine years at Spurs, scoring 10 goals in 255 appearances, and captained the team to victory in the 1999 Football League Cup final against Leicester City.
In 2001 he joined Arsenal on a free transfer. He made 195 appearances at Arsenal and won two Premier League medals and two FA Cup medals.
He also played for Portsmouth, Nott County and Newcastle United.
