Sport Sol Campbell confirmed as the new boss of struggling Southend United as former Arsenal and Tottenham defender signs three-year contract
Why Massimiliano Allegri is perfect for Manchester United: Sir Alex Ferguson called the ex-Juventus boss an 'extraordinary technician' and he'll build from the back (so it's no wonder Tottenham are keen too)
Manchester United have always been the club that have most fascinated Allegri, who stepped down as Juventus boss in the summer after making them become one of the most dominant forces in Europe.The Italian, who was recently in England to watch Tottenham's 7-2 humbling by Bayern Munich, is the most in-demand manager for leading Premier League clubs.
Southend United have confirmed the appointment of Sol Campbell on a three-year deal.
Andy Cole and Hermann Hreidarsson, who played alongside Campbell at Portsmouth, will form part of his backroom team.
The League One side have been on the hunt for a new manager since Kevin Bond left Roots Hall on September 6.
Southend had initially earmarked legendary former striker Henrik Larsson as their next manager, but confirmed that talks with the Swede had broken down.
Henrik Larsson to Southend OFF as talks break down with Celtic legend
The Parkhead legend was on the verge of becoming the League One side's new manager.The Celtic hero was on the verge of taking the position at the League One side, along with former team-mates Johan Mjallby and Tommy Johnson as his assistant and head of recruitment.
His first game in charge will be against title favourites Ipswich Town on October 26 with caretaker boss Gary Waddock overseeing Tuesday night's contest against Doncaster Rovers.
Campbell's reputation was boosted after he was able to keep financially-stricken Macclesfield Town in the Football League last season in what was his first job in management.
Despite turning fortunes around at Moss Rose, Campbell left Macclesfield by mutual consent in August after eight months in charge.
Southend are eight points from safety ahead of the meeting with Doncaster and Campbell has a real task on his hands to lift the club out of their current slump.
