Arsenal legend slams FA in racism rant

Former Arsenal and England captain Sol Campbell has slammed the FA and football in general for their treatment of black players, as reported by the Daily Telegraph.

Campbell believes that he would have been England captain for ten years if he was white and that the people at the top will not change their mind-set as they do not want to.

The former Tottenham and Arsenal defender wore the armband on three occasions for his country but he feels it should have been more, with Michael Owen captaining the side ahead of him.

Campbell has released his autobiography, in which he slams the FA and football fans for not wanting to change their outlook on football with black player and managers not given a fair chance.

“I believe if I was white, I would’ve been England captain for more than 10 years, it’s as simple as that.” he said in the biography by Simon Astaire.

“I don’t think it will change because they don’t want it to, and probably the majority of fans don’t want it, either,”

And he added: “There is a ceiling and although no one has ever said it, I believes its made of glass.”
