And former Arsenal defender, of course - hence the dislike.
Campbell spent nine years at White Hart Lane, before switching to Spurs' north London rivals in 2001.
The then England centre-back went on to enjoy enormous success with the Gunners, even scoring in the Champions League final as Arsene Wenger's side came the closest they ever have to European glory.
And Campbell, it seems, was something of a mentor to 25-year-old Theo Walcott during the beginning of his Arsenal career.
Walcott, of course, didn't exactly endear himself to Tottenham fans last season when his side beat Spurs 2-0 in the FA Cup.
He was stretchered off injured during that game but held up two fingers up to symbolise the scoreline (pictured) as he came off.
The England and Arsenal winger has been out of action since that fateful day in January, when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
Walcott has progressed well during the recovery process, however, and should make a return to playing football this season.
Wenger may look to the 25-year-old to ease the pressure in front of goal for the Gunners, as Olivier Giroud's broken foot means Yaya Sanogo is the only recognised striker in the Arsenal squad, barring a new signing.
Alexis Sanchez has started up front in the north London side's last two games but doubts exist over whether the £35 million winger can play there for an extended period.
