SOL CAMPBELL has left his post as Macclesfield manager by mutual consent, the Sky Bet League Two club have announced.
The former Spurs and England defender exits Moss Rose after just eight months in charge.
Campbell took over in November last year and guided the Silkmen to safety in Sky Bet League Two.
A club statement said the former England defender’s departure had been “conducted in the most amicable of ways and there has been total transparency between the club and Sol regarding the challenges which face lower league clubs such as Macclesfield Town”.
Campbell released his own statement that was shared on the Macclesfield website.
He said: “Macclesfield Town provided me with a great beginning in the managerial side of the game, as well as a fantastic learning curve which I am truly grateful for.
“I would like to thank all the players and staff for their support during my time at the Moss Rose and also all the loyal fans, whose belief at the end of last season ultimately played a tangible role in our success.”
Macc lost their opening game of the League Two season 1-0 away to Exeter.
But they thrashed new-boys Leyton Orient 3-0 in the one after and just last night saw off Blackpool on penalties in the Carabao Cup.
