The best Sol Campbell racism jokes after the former international defender slammed fellow black ex-players for distancing themselves from his autobiography claim that he would have been England captain for 10 years if he was white.
Mirror Online quoted the former Arsenal star as saying:
They are seeing what is happening around them and they don’t do anything about it. They love the status quo. They want to just toe the line.
It’s a case of, “I’m alright, I don’t care who is coming up behind me. I’m too scared to own up”.
Well, I’m not like that and I am never going to be like that. I’m just going to be me.
People could have said what they did in a different way. John Barnes had bananas thrown at him. He is almost acting as if nothing happened to him.
People like him could have said: “Maybe not 10 years but I could see where he was coming from”. Articulate it in a different way. Then you’ve got Paul Ince in the Daily Mail. It’s like: “Really?!” What position are you protecting when your position can so easily be taken away?
I know some of the political people are trying to kind of move the FA in certain ways.
But you just get to the stage where, if I’ve got black ex-players going against me then you start to think: “What is going on here? I’ll just let people drift and carry on doing my own thing”.
Its a book. They are my experiences. Am I not going to say what was on my mind or be honest about my feelings?

Think the only clear & coherent message Sol Campbell has managed to communicate recently is that his book sales are going very badly indeed.
