6. SOL IN ENGLAND CAPTAIN RACE CLAIM
“I believe if I was white, I would have been England captain for more than 10 years” – that is the claim of former England star Sol Campbell. The defender, quoted in the Sunday Times, adds: "I think the FA wished I was white. I had the credibility, performance-wise to be captain.” Meanwhile, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been fined £100,000 for headbutting a Hull City player.
