Former Arsenal, Tottenham star Campbell announces plans to run for Mayor of London

Sol Campbell has officially announced his candidacy plans to become London Mayor.

The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender has disclosed his strategies to become the Conservative candidate to replace Boris Johnson as the Mayor of England's capital next May.

Campbell told The Sun: "I'm going in with my eyes wide open. I know I'm not going to be a frontrunner.

"But I look at people who have been in politics for five, 10, 15 years, and muck up, you see them muck up and think 'You guys are supposed to be pro!'

"People that have gone to Oxbridge, had thousands spent on their education, and I mean they are royally mucking up."

The former England international added: "I bring something new to the table. This is a whole new road for me, something I can get my teeth into, but I just felt it was something I had to do.

"I come from a working-class background, it wasn't easy for me at all, but I worked hard. And now it's about giving something back."
