Robbo Thais up four-year deal BRYAN ROBSON has agreed a four-year deal to become Thailands new manager, the head of the countrys Football Association has announced. The 52-year-old will fill the vacancy left by Peter Reid, who departed by mutual consent 12 months into a four-year contract to take up the post of assistant manager at Stoke after being told he could not split his time between England and the south-east Asian nation. Zlats the way to do it Barca BARCELONA striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed he played through the pain barrier, as the Catalan outfit strode to a comfortable 4-1 win at Racing Santander to return to the summit of the Primera Division. Ibra bagged Barcas first goal, and has now scored in all four league games so far since joining from Inter. I wanted to stay on the field despite the pain. We will see how bad it is, said the Swede. England to face Brazil in Qatar ENGLAND have confirmed they will play five-time World Cup winners Brazil in a friendly in Qatar on 14 November. The match at the 50,000-capacity Khalifa International Stadium will be a first visit to the Middle Eastern state for England and is pay-back for Brazil agreeing to be the first visitors to the new Wembley in 2007. To play a team like Brazil will be important for us, said England boss Fabio Capello. NOTTS COUNTY today confirmed Sol Campbell has left the club by mutual consent after the former Arsenal and Spurs defender walked out -- having played just one game. Reports this morning claimed the 35- year-old had left the League Two club despite agreeing a lucrative five-year deal worth a reported 40,000-a-week at Meadow Lane just last month. At lunch-time, County chief executive Peter Trembling revealed: While we are disappointed that Sol felt that he could not adjust to the long-term nature of theprojectunderwayatNottsCounty, we obviously wish him the best with the remainder of his career. The investment project is on track; we have brought in a lot of new players and resources into the club, but obvi- ously this is a five-year project, not a five-week one. We hope that he is able to obtain a placewherehecanplayatinternational level ahead of the 2010 World Cup. But LiteSport understands Campbell is highly unlikely to be allowed to join a Premier League club before the Janu- ary transfer window -- unless he can prove he had just cause for quitting Meadow Lane. The former England defender, out of contract at Portsmouth, was the most high-profile recruit to the playing staff this summer following Countys takeo- ver by Munto Finance and former England boss Sven-Goran Erikssons arrival as director of football. That takeover deal is now being inves- tigated by the Football League. Campbell -- who was also expected to undertake some coaching duties at County -- made his debut in the 2-1 defeat at Morecambe on Saturday. He was given Monday off by manager IanMcParlandandreportedfortraining yesterday complaining of a sore hamstring. Following a conversation with the manager, he is then said to have asked tobereleasedfromhiscontract.Arsenal fans will remember when Campbell stormeddownthetunnelandawayfrom Highburyathalf-timeagainstWestHam in February 2006. McParlands own future is also in doubt after a poor run -- County are currently eighth -- and it is believed he has been given two weeks to turn things around. Trembling said: Weve got to review whether Ians the man for the job. Hes under pressure. We spent a lot of money so it goes with the territory. BY GEOFF TEATHER Accosting del Sol: Campbell already seems to have had enough as he makes his Notts County debut at Morecambe on Saturday County decide to get shirty over Campbells latest u-turn NOTTS COUNTY will compensate fans who had Sol Campbells name printed on the back of their replica shirt. The former England defender, who still harbours hope of representing his country at next summers World Cup, walked away from the Meadow Lane club today, having played just once for the League Two club. Executive Chairman Peter Trembling said: For any fan that bought a new Notts shirt and had Campbell printed on the back, I am pleased to offer a voucher for the club shop for a replacement shirt. It is an unsavoury end to a story that always promised to conclude with Campbell wiping egg from his face, particularly after his outlandish statements at his initial unveiling. What a fantastic dream to have, to keep winning promotions and get Notts County back into the Premier League, he declared last month.
