Sol Campbell manages to wreck Notts County team photo before quitting

Fear of flash photography possibe reason for sudden departure

Sol Campbell was happily posing for Notts County’s team photo just hours before he walked out on the club. That’s if you count a half-smile and a furrowed brow as happiness. We certainly do.

The ex-England international went through the niceties of the team photo on Tuesday before immediately making it out-of-date by walking into the changing room and saying goodbye to his team-mates.

Magpies chairman Peter Trembling said: “The five weeks Sol has been here he has been as happy as Larry. He played at Morecambe on Saturday then phoned and expressed a few concerns. Maybe it was the stark reality of Morecambe, which, with respect, is not the Emirates. But five weeks ago he was prepared for that.”

No word yet on whether Larry is also planning to quit Meadow Lane.
