Fulham Club statement:
Everyone at Fulham Football Club was saddened to learn of the passing of former manager Bobby Campbell.

As a player, Campbell began his career with local side Liverpool, before taking in spells with Wigan, Portsmouth and Aldershot.

He had his first taste of coaching with Pompey and later spent time in the capital with Queens Park Rangers and Arsenal, before joining Fulham as a coach under Alec Stock in the summer of 1976.

Before long, though, he was promoted to manager following Stock's departure. He remained in charge until October 1980 and during his time at the Club he worked alongside players such as George Best, Bobby Moore, Les Strong, John Mitchell, Gerry Peyton and Les Barrett.

After leaving Craven Cottage he took in management spells with Portsmouth and Chelsea, in addition to further coaching spells back with Aldershot and QPR.

The thoughts of all at Fulham are with Bobby's family and friends at this sad time.

Tributes were pouring in on Saturday from many of Campbell's other former clubs.

'Everyone at Fulham Football Club was saddened to learn of the passing of former manager Bobby Campbell,' a statement from the Cottagers read. 'The thoughts of all at Fulham are with Bobby's family and friends at this sad time.'
