Sol Campbell in talks about signing up with the Tories for the 2020 Election: .....loyalty can't be trusted flipped from Spurs to Arsenal— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 16, 2014
Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has taken a swipe at Arsenal legend Sol Campbell on Twitter.
Reports this week suggested that the former Gunner could go to work for the Conservative Party ahead of the General Election in 2020, with Sugar suggesting that the former England international can’t be trusted.
The reason? Because he switched allegiances from Tottenham to Arsenal at a key point during his career, leaving Tottenham with a big problem in the middle of their defence.
When a fan replied to Sugar with a picture of a happy Campbell, clutching the Premier League trophy, Sugar responded with an implication that Campbell was more interested in financial reward than winning silverware.
Campbell’s move to the Gunners has always been used as a benchmark in terms of Premier League transfers and an example that no matter who a player is owned by, there is always the possibility that he will join their main rivals.
