Sol Campbell has admitted he's working on a number of management jobs
Sol Campbell retired form the game six years ago, hanging his boots up after a short spell with Newcastle.
However, the former England international has not been idle and has spent the last three-and-a-half years earning his coaching badges.
And the 42-year-old has admitted he is now ready for his first managerial job and has "four or five" positions lined up.
"The first person who comes in won’t regret the quality I can bring their club," Campbell told The Independent.
“It’s all about knocking on doors, because it’s a competition. There’s people from abroad, there’s people in this country, there’s people with 10 more years experience than me.
I’m waiting, I’m talking, I’m tapping up, I’m cultivating deals
"I may have to take a no-hope job and I have to turn it around – beggars can’t be choosers for your first job.
“I’ve done all the badges. I’ve got a great history, but obviously haven’t got experience in a managerial job.
“I’m waiting, I’m talking, I’m tapping up, I’m cultivating deals. I’m on about four or five possibilities to try to get a job.
“Hopefully a situation will come. Hopefully something will click with a certain director where they’ll say ‘let’s bring him in and have a conversation with him."

Dimitri Payet: Open to a move to the Emirates saying it would be ‘fun’ to play for Wenger
When asked about who should succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, the former defender claimed it should be someone with a rich history at the club.
And Campbell admitted it is his goal to one day manage a team with the same qualities as the Gunners.
"[It should be] someone who’s done well for Arsenal," Campbell added.
“That is definitely my goal, to have the type of quality players around me, and a quality system. But you’ve got to build up to that.
“I’m just going to wait until an opportunity arises, and it ticks the boxes for the directors, and it ticks the boxes for me, and I offer the difference.”
