Sol Campbell is working with former Arsenal team-mate Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace.
The former England international has been out of work since leaving Southend in June 2020.
Campbell, 47, is looking to get back into management but has admitted he is finding it tough to do so.
Speaking at a Web Summit in Lisbon, via the Daily Mail, Campbell said: “It’s very difficult, sometimes it depends on your career, sometimes it depends on who you know,’ he said at Web Summit in Lisbon.
“For me it is all about being in the right place at the right time. When I started my career in football, I got my first break at Tottenham when someone got injured in the first team and I got in.
Is that going to happen in management, I am not so sure, it is going to be a little bit more than that.
“You don’t know when you are going to get that job or when that opportunity comes but you always have to prepare. That is what I am doing, while I am not working I am learning.
“I am travelling to different clubs, watching managers around Europe and learning. So when it does happen, it happens, I am there, I am not rusty. You always have to be thinking ahead.
“I have got some friends in football, I am going to see Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace. I am really happy for him. You can learn from these guys, that is what you have to do.”
