Arsenal great Campbell blasts Spurs fans: Will you be booing me when I'm 80?

Sol Campbell has hit out at Tottenham fans for jeering him over his move to Arsenal.

The former England defender spent more than 12 years at Spurs, rising through the youth ranks and going on to be a star for their first team.

Campbell told talkSPORT: “It's ridiculous because it happened such a long time ago.

“Are you going to keep worrying about me when I'm 80 years old?

“I was 25 and now I'm 46. You've probably done things when you're 25 or 15 or whatever. It doesn't even make any sense now, move on.

“New team, new stadium, new type of lifestyle going forward, and still passing it around like a campfire story. It's ridiculous.

“For me, it is what it is. We all made our decisions, you accept it and you move on."
