Sol Campbell Awkwardly Forgot Which Team He Was Manager Of During Live Interview
Sol Campbell was involved in an embarrassing gaffe in a post-match interview on Tuesday after forgetting the name of the team he manages.
The former Arsenal defender was speaking after his Southend side were beaten 4-0 by Peterborough in League One and got mixed up and said "Southampton" when talking about his team's performance.
He said: "I think, you know, got to say the young lads, quite a few of them playing for Southampton..."
The interview waited for Campbell to finish his response before asking if he wanted to redo his answer, to which he replied, "Why?".
It was then he was told, "because your team's Southend" - and to be fair the ex-England centre-back took it quite well following his tongue-slip.

I did a few things wrong at 34, but never forgot the name of my club! Lollollol! And can't get near a gig on the radio! pic.twitter.com/eGDxl8rdUG- John Sitton (@TheRealSitts) February 12, 2020
Campbell, who previously managed Macclesfield Town, famously made a gaffe during his World Cup predictions as part of a segment on Sky Sports News.
Asked who would win between Belgium and Brazil in the quarter final, he replied: "I think France".

Sol Campbell: "France"
Yet he has the cheek to call himself "one of the greatest minds in football" and wonders why he still can't get a job in management.
