Former England defender Stuart Pearce has described Sol Campbell's claims that he would have captained England for ten years, had he been white, as "very unusual."
Speaking to talkSPORT, the former Three Lions skipper said:
– Former England defender Stuart Pearce
I find it a very unusual statement but it’s obviously something Sol believes.
I wouldn’t believe for one moment he was ever denied the captaincy of England because of the colour of his skin. I find that incredible. Paul Ince was captain of England and that didn’t hold him back in any way, shape or form.
It’s sad that he thinks that. I personally, in my wildest dreams, wouldn’t believe that would ever hold you back from captaining England in this day and age.
