Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell wins the league and posts wild celebration photos

Arsenal loanee warmed up for Manchester United in style.


24 hours before Arsenal clinched a crucial win over Spurs, one of their loan players ensured he would end the season as a champion.

Joel Campbell was involved for Olympiakos at the weekend playing all 90 minutes as they beat Pamthrakikos Komotini 2-0.

The win lifted the Greek Superleague leaders 18 points clear at the top, an unassailable lead, this weekend becoming mathematically impossible that they could relinquish their advantage.

Campbell at various points over the weekend including straight after the game, posted various photos and messages on his Twitter account, including the above compilation of dressing room celebration pictures. 

Speaking to The Mail at the weekend, he stated that his future is still very much undecided: "I don’t know what will happen. I have two years left on my contract with Arsenal they will decide what will happen.

"There are many things I can improve on, though; I am 21 and I have to keep working."

The Costa Rican has scored 10 goals this season and has another 11 assists, a superb return, including an excellent goal against Manchester United in the Champions League.

Olympiakos travel to Old Trafford this week for the return fixture in their last-16 tie, holding a 2-0 advantage. Coming in as newly crowned champions will do them the world of good, providing they don't over-do it in terms of celebrations before hand.

Campbell will hope to add to his growing collection of strikes, and demonstrate to Arsene Wenger why he deserves a place in the Arsenal squad and first team next season.
