Ex-Arsenal star Campbell wants to replace Ljungberg at Emirates

Sol Campbell has revealed he would “love to” replace Freddie Ljungberg as Mikel Arteta’s number two at Arsenal.

The Swedish icon, 43, left the club last month to pursue his own managerial career.

Campbell made the shock revelation while testing out Marvel’s new Avengers game with fellow his fellow Invincibles.

As soon as Campbell logged on, Robert Pires said: “I have a question for you Sol because Freddie is leaving.

“Are you interested in the job working with staff and Arteta or not?”

Without hesitation, Campbell replied: “Yes, I would. If something came up, I would. I would love to.

“Put my name forward and I will be there.”

Pires laughed as he responded: “I will send a message to Edu.”

Campbell quit as manager of Southend United in June after his team were relegated from League One.

Prior to that, the 45-year-old took charge of Macclesfield Town for eight months.

Campbell was joined by Pires, Ray Parlour, and Ashley Cole as they tested out the new game.

The club legends discussed Liverpool’s defeat to Watford in February – which saw their Invincibles record remain in place.

Cole said: “History is there to be broken, I want someone to beat it. It’s got to be done.”

Campbell interrupted: “Do you? We beat a record that stood for over 100 years.”

When asked if he never wants the record to be beaten, the former Southend boss said: “Give us 100 years.”
