Sol Campbell posts throwback picture in battle with Brazilian icon on Instagram

Sol Campbell is going strong as the manager of Macclesfield Town.

The ex-Arsenal legend is now heading into his second season with the fourth tier English team.

Interestingly, this is, in fact, his second managerial gig as he was named assistant manager of the Trinidad and Tobago national side back in 2017.

But apart from his coaching career, he had quite a journey as a player, accumulating 503 appearances in the Premier League over the years but also impressing on the national stage with England, winning 73 caps in the process.

Recently, he took to Instagram to share a great moment from his personal duel with the Brazilian legend Ronaldo.

Naturally, this iconic image prompted many stars to comment and reply to Campbell.

Rio Ferdinand was among the first ones and he was quick to actually banter his compatriot.

Ferdinand rinsed him about the Uhlsport products while Jamie Redknapp was more focused on the image as he sent support to his friend.
