Sol Campbell: I can help Arsenal as defensive coach

Arsenal great Sol Campbell says he'd welcome the chance to return and coaching the defenders.

Campbell was one of Arsenal's best defenders during a golden era for the club between 2001 and 2006.

He has gone on to have brief stints in management with Macclesfield and Southend, but he now believes his knowledge and experience could be put to best use in north London.

The 73-cap England international told talkSPORT: “I'd love to go there and help them out.

“There is a serious problem there and I'm happy to help, even if it's a couple of days a week.

"The tricks of the trade and little things, there is a blind-spot there and I'd help them out all day long.

“It's been happening a lot and it doesn't matter who plays at the back, it seems to be the same type of occurrences.

“I think it's a young team, there's great footballers but I think they just need the know-how, the little nuggets of information that someone like me or someone else can give over to them."
