Sol Campbell’s former agent has suggested the ex-Tottenham player should be invited to the final game at White Hart Lane.
Spurs play Manchester United in the last ever match at their historic home later this month, and the club has invited a number of former players to attend the game.
Rather predictably, Campbell didn’t receive an invite. The former England defender left Tottenham on a free transfer to join Arsenal in 2001 to the ire of the entire Spurs fanbase.
The 42-year-old is a bonafide hate figure at White Hart Lane, but his former agent, Sky Andrew, believes Campbell should receive an invite to the Manchester United match.
“I would like to see him invited. Spurs are a fantastic club,” Andrew told talkSPORT.
“It would be great for him to be there for the last game at the Lane and for everybody to finish on a good note. It’s not Sol’s fault that he left on a free.
“You cannot place all the responsibility on the player. The other side have to dance to the tune as well and negotiate something.”
He added: “It’s impossible for a player to see out his contract, or it should be. You cannot blame the player. No-one should look at Sol.
“What happened, and this happens at a lot of clubs, is you get a player who absolutely fulfils his potential at a club. Then there’s a problem if the club isn’t fulfilling its potential as well.
“I can tell you it was such a difficult decision for Sol. He refused to speak to any club. January, February, March, he refused to speak to any club.
“No club in Europe can say that Sol Campbell agreed to speak to them because he wanted to sort out his situation with Spurs. At that time he was only thinking of staying at Spurs. In the end he thought his aspirations were elsewhere.”
