After Only One Game – Sol Quits Notts County

Sol_Campbell_280x39_894561aSol Campbell has quit Notts County after just ONE game.

The former England star stunned team-mates yesterday when he walked into the changing-room to say his goodbyes.

Campbell, 34, agreed a five-year £40,000-a-week deal at the start of this month and made his debut in a wretched 2-1 defeat at Morecambe on Saturday.

Campbell went to manager Ian McParland after the game and asked to be released from the deal. The ex-Spurs and Arsenal centre-half was a free agent in the summer after leaving Portsmouth.

He arrived in a flurry of publicity and hoped for a coaching role under director of football Sven Goran Eriksson.

His departure comes as County are being investigated by the Football League, as exclusively revealed by The Sun on Saturday.

League chiefs want details of the money men behind Munto Finance’s recent takeover.

The new owners are understood to have given McParland just two games to save his job.

County face Port Vale at home this weekend and travel to Lincoln on Tuesday night.

Executive chairman Peter Trembling said: “Of course we’ve got to review whether Ian’s the man for the job. He’s under pressure, we spent a lot of money so it goes with the territory.”
