Former Arsenal and England international Sol Campbell is the favourite for the Bradford City managerial role at the odds of 15/8.
The 46-year-old hasn’t had a job since leaving Southend United following their relegation to League Two last season. Campbell won just four of his 23 matches in charge of Southend but was unable to sign players In the January transfer window as the club had a transfer embargo, which significantly hampered the progress of the side. The Shrimpers also sold many of their key players during this period.
Campbell’s best managerial spell came at Macclesfield Town in the 2018/19 season, as they were one of the favourites to be relegated from League Two. When the former Portsmouth man took over at the Moss Rose based side in late November, they were five points adrift of safety in the league. Campbell oversaw his side winning eight games, as well as drawing 12 in 30 matches. Macclesfield drew 1-1 away at Cambridge United on the last day of the season, which was good enough to keep the club in League Two. Just before the start of the following campaign, Campbell left the club via mutual consent as the club was in financial turmoil.
This move is highly likely to happen, as Campbell has managed around this level before and shown what it takes to succeed, he has previously managed two financially unstable clubs so the former England international is yet to be able to show his full potential as a manager.
