Arsenal hero Campbell hails Granada coach Adams: One of the greats

Arsenal hero Sol Campbell has hailed former teammate Tony Adams as a Gunners legend.

Campbell has paid tribute to his old defensive partner Adams in the week that 'Mr Arsenal' was named as head coach of Spanish top-flight side Granada.

"Tony was a fantastic captain," Campbell told arsenal.com. "He's been so connected with one club and that club is Arsenal.

"For me, he was a great captain, he stood up for everybody. For everybody, he kind of led the line. He's Arsenal through and through. He's an organiser and he made sure everybody was always up for games and things like that. He is a true, true leader.

"He won many games with Arsenal, captained the club for a very, very long time and he will go down as one of the greats not only for England but definitely for Arsenal."
